Why Ubuntu Is Better Than Vista 04/02/2010
There are many reasons why Vista is better than Ubuntu. For those of you who think that Linux is terrible and Windows rocks, here is my say on why Ubuntu is better than Windows.
1. No Viruses - Linux does not recognize Win32 Executables so the possibility of having a virus is absolutely 0%
2. Open Source - Unlike Windows, Linux distributions are open source and the source code can be edited and modified to the most to suit your needs. The majority of software available for linux is open source as well, meaning its free of charge, viruses or limitations.
3. Free Software - Every application and software on Linux is free and open source. You don't need to worry about licenses anymore and you can always find a better and free Linux alternative to a Windows application.
4. Easy to Use - This point may seem ironic but is true to a lot of extent. Linux Ubuntu is one of the most user-friendly and easy to use Linux distribution which even beats Windows XP and Vista in usability and ease of use. Unless you get fancy with the terminal or anything like that even your grandma could use this OS.
5. Ubuntu Community Help - Ubuntu has a very active support and help community where you can get answer to your questions and problems in minutes. Visit the ubuntu forums to get an idea of this.
6. Cool Desktop Effects - For those who think Aero in Windows Vista is damn cool! wait till you experience Compiz on Ubuntu which provides better 3D desktop effects with less resource usage.
7. Easy Upgrade - You can upgrade Linux Ubuntu through the package manager and all applications can be installed/updated through it. There is no need to Google for freewares as the package manager helps you find all of them.
8. Highly Customizable - If you like customizing your operating system without a billion registry and software hacks then Ubuntu is your ultimate choice. Wan't your computer to look completely different? Go to System>Preferences>Apperance
9. Experience Live - Linux Ubuntu CDs come with a pre-installed OS environment which allows you to run the OS without even installing it. Carry your Ubuntu Live CD with you and use it on any PC anywhere around the world.
