    You are saying Linux lags behind windows because the out of the box experience is better in the latter. And I'm asking since when this is true since you have to install the proprietary nvidia drivers in windows while with Linux we have a solution with potential since Nouveau and Gallium comes steadily to fruition.
    Keep in mind on thing. Most of the users in forums like this one know few things more than the average user about computers and can notice who is a real fanboy.

    It just shows you that Ubuntu/Linux still has a long way to go to provide equivalent quality and depth we see in Windows 7/OSX.
    just use fedora 13 instead of ubuntu 10.04, nouveau 3d out of the box.

    correct me if i'm wrong, but i thought that windows only has extremely poor support of nvidia cards, certainly much poorer than the nouveau driver.
    definitely. windows graphics performance out of the box is so much worse than out of the box linux performance. on ati/intel/via, and when nouveau becomes standard that will equal linux behaving better on a fresh install.

    i have had so many more windows problems with wireless than on linux.

    Seconded. I must say I'm really starting to appreciate Fedora's work and contributions to Linux.

    If that's the case, then the test project they have set up for proprietary drivers would be a waste of time.
