    after installing numerous versions of Linux why would i go for a Google linux. Yes it looks nice and a lot better than most distros that i have used before but I am finally back to using xp and not switching for a while. Maybe windows 7 or 9 in the future. The downfalls of linux are its to many distro's and not able to use certain software without trying to do a hack or something. Linux does not do Netflix,Itunes, pc games or when you download something its always rom a package manager and then once you download it. The software doesn't install like off the fly. I have loved linux for a long time but there are just somethings that windows does better.

    • It's really not that complicated....

      I would say you never gave yourself a real chance to learn Linux. I have not had a problem with software in Ubuntu in I don't know how long, but I am also not a gamer and I don't use Itunes for music, so to each his own.
