NOTE: This is not a troll... just an observation.
Here are the basic arguments Linux users present against WindowsNT:
-- WindowsNT is bloated with unnecessary elements.
-- WindowsNT is unstable and unreliable.
-- WindowsNT source code is not available.
-- WindowsNT is full of security holes.
-- WindowsNT lacks in networking capability.
-- WindowsNT is not very scalable.
-- WindowsNT does not support 64-bit processing.
-- WindowsNT only runs on two architectures.
-- WindowsNT cannot be administered very easily.
-- WindowsNT cannot handle heavy network traffic.
-- WindowsNT is not a true multi-user operating system.
-- WindowsNT has an easily fragmented filesystem.
-- WindowsNT is expensive.
-- WindowsNT development is slow.
The above sound like comments from people who know what OSen should have
in them, and how they should work.
Now, here are the basic arguments WindowsNT users present against Linux:
-- Linux is too hard to setup.
-- Linux is too hard to use.
-- Linux apps are too hard to setup.
-- Linux apps are too hard to use.
-- Linux does not have the ability to run "off the shelf" apps.
-- Linux does not have a graphical user interface without adding X.
-- Linux is based on old technology. <-- my favorite
The above sounds like comments from lusers who are too lazy, clueless, or
inept to be using computers in the first place.
Interesting, isn't it.
