Support for software is another issue and then there is the user interface.



There's loads of support! The Linux Community! I've found support I could never have imagined with windows here and on the various distros forums. I agree there are some tasks which probably seem difficult but where there's a will there's a way, and normally someone has already done it in the forums and can help guide you through it :)

Just think printers/scanners with Linux you have to be very careful what make you chose but with windows you can pick any printer you like.

Yes there is fabulous support from forums but not from software makers.

Shall we do a list of Windows weaknesses as a fair comparison ?   :P

Just think viruses, trojans, spyware, malware, Windows also has much better support for them and you don't have to pick and choose yourself Windows will do it all for you :)

If you can keep your head while all around are losing theirs, then you're not quite grasping the situation

I have been using Steam going on 11 years now


I play games with it like Left 4 Dead 2

I have 2 HDD one with Linux (Zorin)
and one with Windows 7 Ultimate

the only time I boot up Windows is for gaming
other than that I use Zorin for everything else....


I think of Windows as a gaming console, just better than what is on the market today
but nothing else
Ubuntu 13.10 32 bit, and other junk in my black cube

Hi Contra, and welcome to the forum :)

Hopefully Steam will be doing away with your Windows dependency soon then.

Steam are "betting big" on Linux as a gaming platform .. so fingers crossed.
