You wiped Windows 98 before installing Linux - of course you thought Linux was better. Did anyone tell you Win98 is crap and outdated? You can't compare the usability of a '98 OS with a '03 OS - that's no way to do a sales pitch.

I have run both Windows XP and Linux in recent years, and heartily recommend Mac OS X ;) Seriously though the modern Linux distributions compare very well against Windows for usability, and comparing against WinXP you'd want to add a bit more to the 4x speed improvement! Hell your laptop probably wouldn't run XP!

I have installed Linux a few times over the years and have always run back to Windows - if only for the apps but also for usability. With Mozilla, OpenOffice, Eclipse, and Mono I can finally make the transition and am now looking to move most of my home computing away from Windows - to FreeBSD or Linux, and OS X. Sadly the company I work for pay me good money to develop web sites running off IIS and .NET or I'd try to change over there too.
