Microsoft Says Windows 7 is better than Linux

September 8th, 2009 | by admin |

windows7-vs-linux-5

Today some slides from microsoft has stunned lots of Linux and windows users.As in these Slides microsoft directly targets Linux and trying to prove that Windows 7 is better than linux.Well this is an old and well known dispute between Linux and Windows users that which OS is better.

First of all i am gonna list down some points mentioned in the slides from microsoft and then i will post all the pictures of presentation from Microsoft.In this presentation microsoft has compared windows 7 with Linux.

Microsoft is trying to prove that Windows 7 is better than Linux by giving the following reasons.

Minimal Software Support

Microsoft says that most of the softwares are compatible with windows 7 and easy to install in just one click.On the other hand Linux has minimal software support(e.g. iTunes and Adobe Photoshop cannot be run on linux)

Easy User Interface

We all know that windows has much easier interface as compare to linux and microsoft is also saying the same thing that users donot have to relearn anything.

Minimal Hardware Support

In the digital life of today we use lots of gadgets everyday(Camera,iPod,Cell Phone) and in windows 7 we have plug an play support for about thousands of hardware which makes our life easy.But in linux we have Minimal Hardware Support.

Support for Gaming

According to microsoft windows 7 has great gaming support which linux doesn’t have.Microsoft has given the example of World of Warcraft but i think there are also lots of other games which doesn’t support linux.But some of them can be played using Wine.

Before somedays i wrote a post  12 Reasons why Windows is better than Linux for Non-techie .This post recieved lots of the criticism from Linux users.In this post i also mentioned the same points which microsoft has mentioned in their slide.

    “Microsoft says that most of the softwares are compatible with windows 7 and easy to install in just one click.On the other hand Linux has minimal software support(e.g. iTunes and Adobe Photoshop cannot be run on linux)”

    This is false, most microsoft windows applications can be run in linux just fine. More software from the windows side is available every day. Yes i can back up my claim.

    “We all know that windows has much easier interface as compare to linux and microsoft is also saying the same thing that users donot have to relearn anything.”

    This is also false. And i can prove it as well.

    “In the digital life of today we use lots of gadgets everyday(Camera,iPod,Cell Phone) and in windows 7 we have plug an play support for about thousands of hardware which makes our life easy.But in linux we have Minimal Hardware Support.”

    This is a complete and outright lie…
    In fact, windows has dropped support for many drivers that linux still to this day supports. I buy new hardware all the time and from bluetooth to wireless to hard drives it’s all plug and play.

    “According to microsoft windows 7 has great gaming support which linux doesn’t have.Microsoft has given the example of World of Warcraft but i think there are also lots of other games which doesn’t support linux.But some of them can be played using Wine.”

    This is the only point that windows has to argue with… yes they have greater support for games, at the cost of security, features, freedom and actual cash. Most games, including new games are playable in Wine. Who are you going to believe, the guys that give you all you need for free and from one location? or the people that take your money, rip you off and expect you to pay even more money for all of the programs you listed in your article.
    I have replacements for all things windows and have stopped using it completely. For 6 years now i’ve been using my old windows programs just fine in linux, AND playing the newest games. I have screenshots and screecasts to back myself up.
    Windows is losing their share of most markets, the only market in fact that they still hold is games… and that is slowly ending as well.

    I have been using computers since the Apple //e. After Apple dumped the // systems I refused to use Mac. I tried and found the Mac just was not what I needed. I then went to Windows using a Tandy HX1000 all the way up to a hand built system using Windows 98. After meeting a man who wrote much of the system and finding out that much of it was filled with bugs I vowed I would never use another Windows release. Hence, the add on packs which are pure rip offs. I recently used WinXP and found it a nice OS but it crashed every two weeks and needed a re install each time. I’m sorry, but all those headaches are just not worth my time.
    After I found PCLinuxOS I have never been happier. I can play EVERY SINGLE WINDOWS GAME ever released, including ALL THE DOS GAMES. Any game that runs in Windows CAN run in Linux. PERIOD. It just takes a bit of patience and work.
    It took me time to install PCLinuxOS to my system, but after I read everything and paid attention I will NEVER return to Windows again. I would rather drink a quart of draino and die with my Linux based laptop in my coffin.
    The best thing about PCLinuxOS is the repositories which contain 1,000’s of free downloads. You name it, it’s there. If you have DOS or Windows games, you’re in for a treat with PCLinuxOS – the graphics, sound and everything is far superior to Windows. After I found this fact out on my own, I realized I will NEVER return to Windows again. I’ve had enough.
    LONG LIVE PCLINUXOS! Radically Simple, Graphically Superior!
