Only ignorant Windows users would say stuff like that. (Before I get banned, please note that there is a difference between IGNORANT and just STUPID. IGNORANCE is curable)
My argument for *nix (Linux is based off Unix, and not that much changed. So, they’re pretty much kind of the same) being better than Windows is thus:
[li]Windows has a GUI, all the time. No choice. With *nix, you can choose NOT to have one, which saves resources.
[/li][li]I, as well as a SHIT LOAD of others, have found Windows to have more downtime than *nix. Crashes are a part of it, yes (I’ve never had *nix actually CRASH, while Windows has done so a few times), but that aside, Microsoft likes to force it’s updates on you. That’s not the major point of the problem, the major point is Microsoft has said about a lot of updates “U NEED 2 RESTART UR COMPUTER NAONAO BECUZ OF THIS LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL XD”. *nix you only have to reboot when you’re messing with the kernel (which doesn’t happen very much at all).
So, yes, *nix IS better for servers. Desktops, however, remain at the throes of “What the fuck do you plan on DOING with your desktop?”
