In my latest blog post "Activity Round up: HACK IN DA B0X" I conclude
that Windows 7 is a user hostile environment compared to your typical
desktop GNU/Linux distro.
There was a time that Linux was a geek OS, but that is a long time ago.
Most of us got a bit tired of the main press "Year of the Linux Desktop"
stories. If we are honest we can conclude that Microsoft Windows is the
underdog by now. In contrast to Linux, Windows is almost ready for the
Microsoft enthusiasts have been claiming that Windows 7 doesn't require
the much criticized reboots. I have no idea where they got this
"knowledge" but it simply isn't true. I don't know how many times I had
to reboot Windows 7, anyway it was many times. Also the update mechanism
in contrast to your typical Desktop Linux distro is quite user hostile
and time consuming. Plus the lack of a package manager makes Microsoft
Windows a user hostile environment and to be fair, after a couple of
updates and installing some software, it became dog slow (within 24 hours).
All the best,
