Ubuntu compared to Vista and Windows 7Linux · Windows
There is a really interesting article over here about ubuntu 9 compared to Vista and Windows 7.
They compared installation time. Ubuntu was faster.
Mouse clicks in the installation: Ubuntu had less.
Disk space used: Ubuntu used less.
Bootup: Microsoft was faster, Windows 7 being the leader.
Shutdown: Linux was faster.
IO: Linux was faster.
Python: Windows just about edged it.
