Here is why Windows is better than Linux. (1) Installing programs is easy with windows because there is a standard. Try installing VLC and you'll see what I mean. (2) Anytime you try to install or change something on your own computer you have to type a password. And god forbid you run the program in root, then you get every warning that exists. (3) Installing anything good in Linux requires an entire weekend ending up in learning how to reinvent the wheel. (4) To truly use any Linux distribution your going to have to either take classes in how Linux works or spend time reading a lot of books and forums.

I just tried this, it didn't work for me
+1 to Martin, back in 2005 the linux scene was much worse than it is now, just as it was in it's time much better than it was in 2000. The point is linux development is vastly superior to Windows, we would never go 6 years without a release.

I could go into more details but here is the point. Both sides have thier advantages, I use both. The funny thing is that Linux needs Windows. Windows provides a goal, a standard. What would happen if all of a sudden windows was no longer used? No longer any market domination. What would happer? The bleak reality is that we need windows to give people a standard.
Keeping an eye on others without becoming distracted
As a footnote to this entry, I thought I'd share something related but not strictly on this topic that we keep running into with Plasma. We do keep eyes on what others are doing, whether that's Microsoft, Apple, Google, Intel, Nokia, Enlightenment, GNOME or people doing purely academic research work. This helps give us some perspective and reality checks from time to time. It also helps us get some good ideas we may not have come up with on our own. At the same time, we're doing new things in new ways as well, and so while we watch others we also have to remain on guard that we don't end up becoming distracted from our own mission. There's a fine line between keeping tabs on the other cars in a race and chasing their light lights. It's interesting to observe how easy it is for the human mind to start doing the latter. Perhaps that's just part of being a social species?
