I stumbled across a link to an editorial at DesktopLinux with four reasons why Windows still manages to open a can of whup-ass on Linux. Before I start, though, let me say -- because people always assume I'm anti-Linux when I write pieces like this -- that I use Linux desktops every day. I'm writing this on a SLED (SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop) 10 system, I run MEPIS 6.01 and Xandros Professional Desktop 4.1 on my laptops, and on my other desktops that I use at least weekly, you'll find Freespire 1.0, Fedora Core 6, and openSUSE 10.2. In short, I use Linux. I love Linux. But, that doesn't mean I'm blind to business reality, Windows virtues, or Linux flaws. I really agree with his points, and have said as much on a few occasions around here. This isn't about the superiority of an OS over another. It's about reality.
