Vista vs Fedora 10

Thursday, December 11, 2008

This is everlasting conversation according to me bcz this is the debate which was goin accross linux and windows. But one thing i can say is that linux was trying accross to make user feel comfortable working on their environment when compared to windows. when comparing vista and fedora , Vista has an advantage: it comes already installed on most systems. By contrast, pre-installations of GNU/Linux, such as Dell's Ubuntu systems, are still rare.
Both Windows and GNU/Linux distributions now feature graphical install programs and first-time boot wizards with detailed instructions that any intermediate user can understand.
But still i feel like user is comfartable installing windows from scratch rather than linux.
Here are the few points which i can compare are
Look and Feel
Now Fedora and Vista look similar. But Now Fedora has many things that can really overtake windows.There are differences in menus and Listing out of currently running programs.
