Windows 7

Still haven't tried Vista, so I don't know or care.

All I know about Windows 7 is that all the demonstrations that I've seen involve the touchscreen, which I consider about as useful as an electric spoon. The touchscreen certainly has it's applications, and it looks great when a magician demonstrates it on TV, but all I have to do is drag my finger accross my monitor one time, and I know that I don't want one. Did you see the stories where certain "experts" were predicting that the touchscreen would replace the mouse in five years? Well, I predict those experts will be replaced in one year, three years tops.

St. Ignutius, code for us now, and at the hour of our reformating, Amen.

It'll do ok, but...

...one still has the Windows legacy to deal with, cost, virus, DRM , lock-in/lock-down of code and capability.
And I probably will never buy a Win7 system, especially, since I am not a gamer.

Vapurware

You're promoting the misconception that a non-existent O/S (maybe to be released in 2010 with DRM enabled) is already here to compete. That's playing right into Microsoft's hands.

Not to mention that

MS usually puts out a semi decent beta. then they toss in the rest of the crap and end up with what they always end up with.

How to: Install Google Chrome web browser on Ubuntu Linux (and uninstall Firefox)

Ubuntu comes with a lot of quality software pre-installed. Unfortunately, the default web browser, Mozilla Firefox, has been on the decline -- it is slow and clunky. On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
