Ubuntu vs Windows(tm)

My laptop works now with ubuntu hoary. Believe me, Ubuntu is easier to install, to configure (network interfaces, etc..) and to use than Windows XP. e.g: i am currently doing a drag'n'drop between a windows shared folder to an ftp server with nautilus, without to have to configure samba or whatever software. Doing thee equivalent with windlws means : downlad/install winscp3 and leechftp then connect to the ftpserver and then drag the files.. but .. hey ! it crashes under windows WP ! Really, windowsers, try Ubuntu, and see. You'll never get back !
