    Sharpton saidI don't think they can:

    -Windows 95
    -Windows 98
    -Windows 2000
    -Windows XP
    -Windows Vista
    -Windows 7
    -Windows 8


    Are you saying that they will fix ALL six of them while working on the 7th? No way.


    Microsoft no longer supports versions of Windows earlier than XP, and they're about to stop doing that too. If you're still running Windows 98, you have much bigger problems than RCE.

    They've ALREADY fixed 6 of the 7 issues that were discovered. I bet you the 7th one will be deployed on Tuesday next week. Pretty sure they have plenty of devs.

    Ugh, i hate the newer openOffice versions. It was doing so well until it decided to go the way of bloated icons and hiding everything.

    Get all of my software to run on it and I'll switch over 100%

    Until then it sits as my server & plaything when I'm bored.

    That is an issue for a lot of people, yes. The Wine emulator helps somewhat but leaves a lot to be desired. For my purposes it runs all of the software I need, though. In fact, there is some software I use that is easier to get on Linux than on Windows. And I must say that I take a certain perverse pleasure whenever I see some software that is better supported in Linux than on Windows or Mac (ex: LibreOffice).

    @GAMRican:
    Personally, I'm more partial to

    Its Cinnamon interface is just more intuitive to me than Unity.
