For once, I agree with Microsoft. Microsoft think Linux is better than Windows.

Windows has better features, is easier to use, and has more software. Linux is pointless.

To examine this proposition, let us first take a look the the pivotal word it this debate and define it. That word is better, which is the comparative form of the word good. the word good has so many meanings, and can be examined so many ways, that this debate holds no educational value unless we assume that the resolution actually means "That Linux should be used as opposed to Micosoft" This proposition actually holds ground in debate theory and is not so incredibly abusive and open to all assortments of kritiks and squarrely cases as the original statement was. For example, I could write an arguement on how Microsoft is more evil than Linux. That is, unless we are to argue rather or not Linux is evil, which would be a waste of time seeing as it is an operating system and the only way that it could be evil would be if it were used for evil. Clearly, swords are not evil: just the man who uses them to kill the innocent. Because the resolution is abusivly broad, it holds no educational value. Furthermore, comprehensive definitions of good are not applicable to operating systems because they are nadament objects. In conclusion, whoever wrote this proposition needs to go find out what debate is, versus wasting their time claiming that they are a Mac user and a member of the 'geek herd.' Last time this debater checked, this herd was limited to those who were smart enough to analyze and comprehend basic problems such as using the word 'good' to discuss an inadament object in a formal environment. If the drafter were to write a proper propostion or policy, I would be more than obliged to thoroughly deny the affirmative position.

What is to be understood by better? Better at what? They both have their strengths and their weaknesses. Windows excels at user friendliness, and ease of use, while Linux, the simple task of installing can become a 2 day process. One must ask, what is the point of using a computer? What is its intent? 1) Informational purposes. 2) Entertainment Windows has “out of the box” network capabilities making it easy to access the internet, just as effectively a Linux computer could, without all the hassle. Entertainment? From the standpoint of rich-media (Eg, video games/movies/etc) windows certainly excels. To what this can be attributed it debatable, but nonetheless 90% of media and gaming are intended to be ran on a windows machine. I agree with the statement “Windows is better, for the standard user, using a computer for standard reasons”
