    What a joke this Ubuntu is.
    It's like Linux is moving backwards and getting worse, if that is even
    possible.

    If you think freezing in any Linux distro is bad, you obviously haven't
    used Windows long enough for it to go poop on you without warning.

    At least you're wise enough to recognize a better man.

    I've used every version of Windows from Windows 2.0 to present
    I use it everyday.
    In fact right now I am submixing 14 tracks of digital audio using Nuendo
    while I am writing this.

    Windows XP is rock soild.

    Linux?

    Well according to the Ubuntu and Fedora forums people are pulling their
    hair out with problems that never seem to get fixed.

    Same can be said for Windows.

    Each new release of Windows rarely fixes the problems in the old release
    which really mattered. Instead, it piles more and more and more broken
    features on top of what's already a bad mess.
