Linux, Windows, Mac OS... It sparks a fierce debate which is better... and one must ask one's self which one IS better? Our answer? none. Silly Humans. We laugh at your misfortune. Having no proper enducation in simple seperation of species and phylum you lack the ability to distinguish that these animals have seperate and distinct sub groups that MUST be taken into every arguement reguardless of intent! You see we can not argue that Windows is better without first taking into account that there are currently 4 seperate and distinct subversions of Windows. For instance, there is windows Xp, Windows Vista, Server 2003, and Server 2007. We can't argue that "Windows" Is better without first acknowledging that any ONE version may be "teh suk" in any particular task we try to perform! Allow us to make this point more clear. TASK: John wished to watch a video that is stored on a computer. he wishes to watch this video on his TV in another room. He has the following hardware to work with: 1 PC (with a standard 4 head NON-RAID sata controller) 1 TV 1 Xbox 360 How may this task be acomplished? Now If he is running ether Windows XP or Vista on his computer he may simply install windows Media player 10 or 11 and then he can stream the video use UPnP! simple task complete! Windows wins! But let's add some complexity! lets say that John is also a Download Fiend! He spends his days downloading mass videos from the web and he wants to store them ALL on his PC for streaming later on! to do this he must have a mass storage... for now he is safe with his 1.5 Terrabyte hard drive, but he realizes he will eventually run out of space! what to do?! Well John could then look into his storage options! Eventually he will look into building a large storage solution called RAID. in RAID John can configure a GROUP of hard drives to store his precious videos! but then John realizes that to safely sore his data he must use something called RAID level 5. this can't be done in Windows XP NOR Vista! so he installs Server 2003... which DOES handle RAID 5. count another win for Windows right? WRONG! You see No windows Server OS will allow you to install the needed UPnP software to stream to his xbox! so he is now given a choice; stream a few movies OR store a massive collection of movies... NOT BOTH! Now we know that John could have simply purchased a mass storage controller with HARDWARE RAID instead of SOFTWARE raid but we are making an arguement in the real world. If John wishes to spend his money on hard drives, he probably will have very little left over to get that $900 raid controller! Now many will read this arguement and assume We are a Linux zealot... we are ... but we recognize that linux isn't always the best OS for a task! for instance, lets say John has the same setup and he installs ANY flavor of Linux... now lets say he has a MASSIVE collection of MP3s. Now Lets say John wishes to listen to his music using a pair of Bluetooth head phones... the average PC user will NOT be able to do this out of the box. in fact, dare we say it no experianced user could to it either! You see Undoubtedly John will want FULL use of his Bluetooth headphones! this means he want to use the a2dp sound profile AND he wants to use the buttons on his headset to controll the medial player... thus far there are flavors of Linux that can use the buttons and there are flavors that have a2dp support... NOT BOTH! But Windows can do this OUT OF THE BOX! The moral here? Well the dead trolls said it best; Every OS Sucks!
