When our network manager recently became very enthusiastic about the latest
Ubuntu <http://www.ubuntu.com/> release (9.04), I asked him to spell it out.
This is what he said:

Ubuntu is better than Windows (eg. Vista) as follows:

   - managing memory
   - easier to install virtual box, for testing multiple OS environments
   - managing multiple OS environments, it can run 4 separate sessions
   without noticeable lag (cf. 2 sessions max with Vista and VMware)
   - app support out of the box - it just tells you what you need to run an
   app and then installs it for you
   - no need to run anti virus software
   - more stable, it never seems to fully crash (blue screen of death)
   - if the window does freeze then it has a kill an app feature which works
