Windows is indeed slower than other operating systems in many scenarios, and the gap is worsening. The cause of the problem is social. There's almost none of the improvement for its own sake, for the sake of glory, that you see in the Linux world.
Uses own distribution. This is what a government should be doing to save money
This is a list of apps that show signs of (upcoming) Linux support on Steam.
The cyber attack used against south korea recently has a component that targets *nix machines and wipes them. Only if the infected windows machine has mRemote setup with root access to the *nix machine, which is the kind of stupidity that deserves to be punished

Ubuntu + LXDE
Hey all. I came across an HP POS computer from a closing corporate retail store. I got it for $60. I added an optical drive, a usb wireless internet stick and am adding a PCI card that supports HDMI. You get the idea why I got this thing. Here's the problem. It had a tailored version of XP on it (XP embedded with all of this "Borders" bookstore shit). Went into and tried to hack the pieces out that I didn't want but couldn't get XP to start up again. So I'm rockin' Ubuntu and so far am liking it, but I'm pretty noobish in general. I had help with the XP hacking I was doing and had some questions about Ubuntu. Thought this forum would be fun to ask questions and watch you all talk about shit.

So security researcher Brendan O’Connor is trying a different approach to spy hardware: building a sensor-equipped surveillance-capable computer that’s so cheap it can be sacrificed after one use, with off-the-shelf parts that anyone can buy and assemble for less than fifty dollars.
A new mobile phone to replace the venerable N900. The N9 uses the MeeGo Linux OS, developed and maintained by The Linux Foundation.
