Yanike Do you always buy any new product because it's new? and belive any marketing promise.
No. I bought VIsta so I can already have it. I like trying new things anyways to see if it is all that it's cracked up to be. If you are running a high powered machine then you might not see the problems other people are seeing. Right now Vista sucks and a lot of people would agree on that. Me and a other person went back and forth on this. Even he thinks VIsta was the worst thing ever made. He loves Ubuntu though because he's a command junkie. He hates IE and that he has to use MS Win sometimes. Still, even he admits after SP1 Vista will be a powerhouse OS. I hope the same, but I really want Ubuntu to take over. Once you get used to Ubuntu, Vista's bells and whistles are muted. A lot more people are finding out about Ubuntu and wanting to see more.
I laugh sometimes when I see people saying it wouldn't bring any profit. I guarentee if Adobe, MIdway and other mainstream companies started to develop on Linux Ubuntu, people will soon enough start buying their products. Because in the end, the only thing people will be paying for is the products they need and not the OS itself. If a company releases a product someone needs, they will pay to get it. I hope all the best for Linux Ubuntu.
Also, it's very hard for a company to break into mainstream and have their OS mentioned with Windows and Macintosh. Ubuntu has done a great job and I hope more developers come and help out to build it better
For once, we can have an OS made for the people, by the people and given to the people for free. Microsoft didn't care about anything until people started searching for alternatives and finding out the truth of MS Quick and Dirty Operating System (Q-DOS aka MS-DOS)
