OP basically says "my wife liked Windows before, but she didn't like W7 and I didn't either for reasons X, Y and Z, so now we use Ubuntu and that's awesome" - Linux User Superiority? Give me a break! Calling his post "pointless bashing" is just lame; if someone had said that Ubuntu is slow, clunky and has an inferior way of managing software, I think you'd have called that relevant criticism rather than "pointless bashing."
Which brings us back to this thread where the OP's tone in the first is along the same lines; tried windows, it was broken and thus was implied that because his wife liked it those of us who don't use it are somehow 'wrong' for using Win7 which he seems to think is cluttered etc. which smacks of classic Linux User Superiority which many people (probably on both sides of the fence) are pretty sick of.
While many Linux users - especially new Ubuntu converts - tend to be quite vocal and extremely annoying about their OS of choice, claiming that there is no anti-Linux bias in the lounge is ridiculous.
