Tux Love (PCWorld): I've become so used to wobbly windows now that whenever I use a regular machine I end up feeling cheated if I drag one and it doesn't display a certain sticky inertia.

Filed under
Microsoft

Linux Insider: We're now seeing Microsoft's true stripes. The performance of the products is a charade, an unfortunate cost of doing business in a once competitive market.

Windows Vista, with all the DRMs built in, is bloated beyond belief, especially with the shiny "Aero" effects. Anyways, people who do this had better check the system requirements before they pick a distribution.
