It is a debate that is being argued more loudly, more boldly, and more passionately than ever before: the showdown between two kernels, two user groups, and two operating systems. Microsoft Windows is often seen as the hulking brute of the industry, enjoying such profit only because they have profit to begin with. Windows is scoffed at by Linux users for weak security, infamous performance issues, and that annoying Start button. Linux users liken themselves to the Rebellion: outnumbered, outgunned, but certainly the technical superior. What Windows can do, Linux can do better - or so they say. They revel in the beauty of an open source operating system built by the few <I>for</I> the few. What say you?
