I am trying to convert some people to Linux. As a person that has not
used Windows in over eight years I am not certain of the current
limitations of Windows when compared to Linux.
I know of its basic headaches like crash, poor memory usage, lack of
reasonable security, virus problems and license cost. I hear most often
concerns about linux - "lack of help". I normally reply with "When was
the last time you emailed Bill Gates and got a answer? I have emailed
an heard from just about any Linux software maintainer I have ever
emailed in less than a day".
However, I am in need of some of you that use or used Windows and know
of its less obvious problems to add to my "Linux Benefits" list.
If possible seperate into versions - 9x, ME, XP, NT/2K and their Sever
systems. (Not to mention Microsoft "Services for UNIX 3.0").
Unless it is like yesterdays "Swiss cheese" security flaw.
