Almost 100 articles and blogs on the topic of “ubuntu sucks” were published in the past month alone, and about as many were published that unequivocally state Windows is better than Ubuntu.
But upon closer examination, I found that a substantial portion of these negative reactions to Ubuntu stem from unrealistic comparisons.
Almost all of the hurdles people seem to have when switching from Windows to Ubuntu appear to be errors in judgment and assessment, rather than actual problems with the OS.
Unfortunately, as humans our tendency is to judge new experiences solely on the basis of previous ones. We determine likes and dislikes not necessarily on merit or logical analysis, but rather on familiarity and comfort.
