I've noticed that someone put the article on digg: http://digg.com/linux_unix/Ten_Reasons_To_Dump_Windows
You can help digging it if you find it useful.

By the way, I'd like to thanks Mariusz Czyż for correcting the second part of this article. It's really important that we keep the good quality of the content.

To those interested - the third part is currently being translated by Mariusz and it will hopefully be available soon as well.

Cheers,
michuk

exaggerated and long

Those articles exaggerate quite a bit; it comes off as subjective, from the point of view of someone that just had to deal with Windows. Also, they're waaaay too long.

I agree that they are subjective. I even mentioned it at the beginning.
Still, I'm talking about top 10 Windows failures -i it's not a Windows/Linux comparison or stuff like that.
If I exxagarate, please tell me where in particular. I will remove all the information that is just not true (or post an update in such a situation).

misread

Sorry, I misread the not be objective part as be objective.

Well, to start about the exaggerations:

Quote:

Avoid all so called “security patches” (whatever they are). Your system has been installed by a professional so there is no reason to mess with the settings - you can only break things. They say Windows is secure anyway, so why bother with the patches?

Why would they make security patches if they didn't want their customers to install them?

Come on, that was ironic Smiling

The whole "security instruction" for Windows is a joke of course. Later on I'm talking serious about the differences in default security settings.
