Windows vs Ubuntu

I have not delved into the war between Windows and Ubuntu. Although, if it were a true war, it would be more like when Germany invaded Austria. Not much of a fight was put up by the Austians, was there?

When I edited Digital Life, there was an insistance from the geekdom that we include an Open Source section. It was fine and it took up two easy pages. I decided that if open source and Linux etc should get its own pages, so should Mac and Windows. Suddenly advertising arrived. Wow! People use Windows! Who would have thought?

Then I stumbled upon this little gem of information from Ed Bott at ZDnet. He did a little test with updates. Amazingly, Ubuntu needed more updates that Vista.

Sure, I hear you open source bunny say, it's because it needs to be updated. Well, duh! It's a work in progress.

Check it out here.
