So comparisons are not really possible.
(and yes I know many OS progs are available for windows too, but you see my point).

Win-7 You're putting a very basic and dressed-down version against a Linux distro that offers all one could ask for just a mouse-click away So, if you want a fair comparison, put up the "all-singing and all-dancing" Win-7 version against any mainstream Linux distro. And as I said, the price-tag for that is probably 800+ in any currency, but w/o standard programs like Office, Word, etc. And then you still don't know the TCO, what does M$ support cost these days? Again, to be fair, use the price for the equivelent period Ubuntu LTS offers....LeeNukes wrote:Fair for which side?
