There is a recent “PC Pro” magazine article comparing Windows 7 to Ubuntu, which concludes that Ubuntu is almost as good as Windows 7.
This would be roughly like Michele Bachmann comparing Ronald Reagan to Edward Kennedy and concluding that Edward Kennedy is almost as good. So, we can safely conclude that Ubuntu kicks Windows butt.
I hated the article for several reasons, but could not bring myself to write a review or response. But, JH at Linux in Exile did: Windows vs Ubuntu.
