comment Install ubuntu next to windows
installing Ubuntu under a Windows-based VM runs really slow!.. its better to install Ubuntu within the NTFS partition, you can still dual-boot.

in the sense of no moving parts vs. a spinning disc with moving heads.. as time moves forward, SSD's will get better, just like everything else which evolves!

comment Does Windows still rely on MS-DOS?
which ever way you look at it, XP, Vista and 7 still have many inherited features from DOS which make people think Windows sits ontop of DOS, like partitioning storage into Drive C:, D: and many CMD commands that are identical. Windows would've been better off if it had adopted the UNIX file system, Kernel and functionality.

Even Windows 7 still feels like a GUI front-end to DOS. I guess they wanted to maintain upward compatibility with DOS, but that started to partially disappear after DOS 6.22. I was hoping Windows would have been totally re-designed to not have any DOS-like features such as the cmd.exe CLI.
