YAY!

Christopher Dawnson over at ZDNet has announced the end of the Ubuntu vs. Windows war, the world is safe again!

Till the next time!

WAIT! Hold it!

What the heck?! Wasn’t ZDNet supposed to be a reliable source of information regarding technology? So what are these shenanigans about his 17 year old saying that they’re the same? I’ll tell you what it is: it is the most bold statement I’ve heard all year, and also the most idiotic one. So just because a 17 year old says that they’re the same, 6 billion people will just agree and this fact will just be set in stone? Bullshit.

Windows and Linux are different; it’s about time people realize that. I absolutely need both so is this proof enough that they are ultimately different?

Christopher says: “Their underlying architectures are quite a bit different, Gnome looks different than the 7 UI, etc.”. The underlying architectures are quite a bit different, Gnome looks different than 7 does, but apart from that, which by the way is everything that effing matters in an Operating System, they’re pretty much the same.

I have a Hyundai Getz, my neighbour has a Ferrari, but apart from the engine and the chassis they’re pretty much the same. They both have wheels! A whole set of four! So they must be the same…

Come on guys… get serious.
