Ubuntu Linux Rox.
Sorry. Couldn’t resist
I’m using Ubuntu as well: I’m currently administrating (ok, trying to several Windows systems (XP and Vista), and I can’t believe how difficult the file system has gotten (or, more correctly, what the usersees from the file system) in comparison to, Windows 98 or NT4.
Just one example: When I want to transfer a file via FTP from my web space onto the Windows nmachine, I fisthave to perform a seach on where the desktop is located, because that’s where all the downloads are stored by default. There are locations named My-this and My-that, which I personally find pretty confusing.
Bottom line, though: imho it shoudn’t read ‘PC vs Mac’, but ‘Windows vs MacOS’.
Sorry for the typos, but my comment was somehow posted “automatically”, before I was able to correct them.
Corr.: I believe it should properly read “user sees of the file system”. It’s not just C:\ … anymore.
