But it /is/ true.

I installed 9.3 a couple weeks ago and all went smoothly, even with cheap
hardware. Ubuntu likewise, so why stick to stereotypes? In fact, last month
we installed Windows XP for my mother. The monitor was improperly detected,
sound still does not work, Web cam was difficult to get working, virus took
over after *minutes* and the list goes on and on. The neighbour's lawn seems
greener if you have not metaphorically crossed the fence for several years.

Glad to see this post was genuine... sorry about duplicate paragraphs in my
previous reply (clearly an accident). You may be happy to hear that your
message reached the advocacy newsgroup and thus got read by many, including
Windows advocates who did not confute your words (which is /rare/).
