Yet another bullshit article promoting Windows 7 by attempting to run down Linux. It's all well and good for bloggers to cry wolf about this or that not working in Linux. But the fact of the matter is it's pointless without detail.
The crucial details left out here are the faulty systems specifications. What hardware was being used? Which version of which Linux distribution was being used?
Details Randall. The devil is in the detail and you've provided none. All you've done is written a generic blog entry ragging on Linux and praising Windows. Is it really so hard to promote Windows 7 based on it's merits? You've joined the pointless masses. Well done!
Now bend over. Mr. Ballmer wants you to pick up the soap.
