Windows vs Linux: a modern desktop comparison

We've put together a series of Windows XP, SUSE 9.3 and Ubuntu 5.04 desktop screen shots as a side-by-side comparison of some of the common desktop features available in the modern operating system desktop.

Windows users need not fear making the switch to Linux in this day and age, with the mature desktop environments currently available. There are features available in Windows that are not present in the KDE and GNOME environments, and visa-versa, but the most common features used in Windows are present in Linux. This comparison is based on a default Windows XP installation, the SUSE 9.3 Live DVD and the Ubuntu 5.04 Live CD, without additional software being installed. So we begin.

  • Stephen Harpster's Weblog; By Tom Adelstein (Posted by tadelste on Nov 2, 2005 9:12 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: LXer, Sun
Stephen writes: "Are you people not reading the press before you publish articles trashing us? Does Google News not exist where you live? Let me put on the cranky pants here...."

"Now, I've only been the director responsible for JDS at Sun for a few months now, so I admit I don't know the history around what promises were made to Tom and Sam. Sometimes things are beyond our control, but if we promised you something, we should have at least given you an explanation on why we had to break that promise. So if that's what happened, let me be the one to apologize."

Stephen, we like the way you refer to us as "you people". We also wonder if you bothered to read the article.
