Ubuntu hilariously tries to turn Windows 7 buyers to Linux to “avoid Windows 8” pain


Windows 8 is a major transition in the look and feel of Windows but Ubuntu’s desperate call for desktop users to upgrade to their OS to “Avoid the pain of Windows 8” rings rather hollow when one bears in mind that for desktop upgraders, Windows 8 will still run all their old apps, while Ubuntu’s poor clone of Windows XP will not.

Of course the fact that Steam is trying to move their gaming empire to Linux does mean Microsoft should not completely ignore the threat, but I think just the idea that Windows users will move in droves to Linux is so embarrassing that Ubuntu has already changed the slogan on their web page back to “Your wish is our command”.

Do our readers think Microsoft should be worried? Let us know below.

Thanks Filipe for the tip.
