Linux trolls aside, I use Linux & Windows (when I have to) because there are jobs one does better than the other. With Windows, I have found that if the number of 'services' are reduced (drastically) then Windows is actually stable, fairly responsive and less susceptible to malware. Mayhaps if other techs mand Windows "Lean and Mean" then those suffering the BSOD SP2 will have some relief.

The linux trolls have arrived, as usual. Open the door a bit, and they cram their foot in the door. Hey, I use Linux, Mac, and PC platforms - each has their own strengths, and weaknesses. The key is matching to the user. This "linux is better" or "mac is better" or "pc is better" argument is ridiculous. Did the author even MENTION linux in the original post ? NO he didn't, linux trolls. Stop acting like children, and see the issue for what it really is.

Linux is not tough to use,it rather clicks when u get used to it. Trust me if Windows wasn't there since from the beginning and people get to use the Linux like they did when only *Nix was there, Linux might have dominated the market. Its just plain old dilemma of laziness in which we tend to get most our tasks automated without getting an insightful view of how they are being done.An average Linux user smirks at the thought of using windows on their boxes just for the sake of getting their tasks done. Correct me if I am wrong. Of course Linux provides great UI's for those with less technical skills to do there daily jobs, I believe it will become a force to recon with in the upcoming years if Microsoft keeps on releasing more BS like Vista and later upgrade them to somewhat better 7. Microsoft's Larger than life theory of operating systems has always felt shallow as they always monopolize the shit out of it.Even the code they donated to open source was incomplete, why not just to switch once and for all. regards

You dont have to be a coder to use linux lol, I have many, many friends with ubuntu mini's who couldnt code their way out of a wet paper sack. For the normal web surfing users out there, its just fine.

No Darknet, you're not getting blind in your old age! You in fact did not so much as hint about anything Linux in your article, but I think what the comments are showing is that Linux is really the only viable way to avoid the kinds of problems this article points out. But I also have to agree with novent. Linux is still too geeky for the masses to adopt, and if they did the hackers would be vigorously attacking it as well. Personally, I've dabbled in coding, C, C++, Java, perl, etc. And I'm reasonably competent at it, but I'm just not one of those people who enjoys coding for its own sake. So even though I'm able to make the leap to Linux, so far I just haven't rounded up the time and motivation to do so. But with XP, a decent firewall and your wits about you, you don't really need to. When I do give Linux a try it will be as a way to break my dependence on Microsoft and to take more direct control of my computing and internet environment. But I really don't have to. Oh, and I just want to add that XP SP3 has also been reported having these Black Screens of Death, just read that yesterday. Makes no difference to me since I've been sticking to SP2, and now have yet another reason not to "upgrade" to SP3. I'll take XP the way it was before Microsoft began distributing their Vista/Windows 7 "largess" to it.

novent: Sorry but I can't find the part in the article when I even mentioned Linux, please point it out for me. I must be getting blind in my old age.

This is about the lamest article I have read here in quite a while. What is Linux going to fix here? Seriously, I love Open Source and utilize it everywhere I can. I even contribute source code to the open source community when I am able to. However, until a unified authentication and user source management utility, please don't bring up Open Directory, with support for several Line of Business applications and many integrated, end user friendly, non package dependent systems come about, MS will always hold the market. As far as "no anti-malware program is capable of targeting and removing every malicious file that can potentially impact a Windows installation" that is just BS. No anti-malware anywhere for any system that is readily available to the public has this ability. That is as completely ignorant as saying "No windows users anywhere are safe from hardware failure". But Windows isn't prone to RPM hell cycles, oh just use deb package manager or apt-get ... "what about the programs i want to install that aren't built with those" RPM, YUM, DEB ...etc they all have had issues. But who is there to blame? only the community i.e. your(our)selves. But isn't it free? Yeah its free until you have to hire/pay/train/install something that isn't supported by a vendor. I am all about a good M$ poke, or Bill Gates is trying to patent the alphabet, but this is a horrible, horrible article with no answers or resolve. Darknet has offered so much good advice, tools and interesting reads but this is just plain ignorant. Hopefully some day the open source community can bring something to table to combat this grip that MS has on the IT world but as long as people have to read about compiling, won't happen.

Dont blame M$, blame yourself. Who at this point is honestly surprised that there's a serious bug from a M$ product? That being said the responsibility, in my opinion, rests with the users who continue to pay for there flawed products. Deborah S: You'll be very happy with that decision, I gave up on M$ years ago and ran into the friendly arms of linux. I wish more of the sheep would follow your example.

I hear you babelfishoo, and I'm working on it. Migrating to Linux, that is.
