Do you feel that too?

Today I was at my friend's workplace. He's using Vista. I didn't rumble about Linux, but I couldn't not notice one operation. He drag and drop a file from desktop on to recycle bin. The amount of time needed for this operation to complete was enough for me to start thinking 'Does Recycle Bin do something new in Vista? Isn't it just for so called deleting files?'.

It took at least 6 seconds to delete (move to trash) 23kb file.

Well, it's good to know that some people are living healthier (lower blood pressure) just cause they are using Ubuntu (or any other Linux OS) -> link.

And, really, often I have to work on a Windows machine and every single time I start too many applications. I mean, come on, firefox, thunderbird, irssi, gaim, couple of terminals, xine movie and some music. This is easy and normal on Ubuntu. Is that really too much to ask on Windows? If I even try to do a half of this on Windows I'll get nervous (cause everything stales at random moments), or some apps won't even start. And everything is lagging. I mean, really slow... Doh... Windows users often look at me while working on Windows, and have some 'smart' comments like 'Let it boot. Wait, it's not booted yet.', 'Why are you moving windows so much?', 'Do one thing, than another...'.

Is it only me?
