They had what 20 years now. There is a reason they are losing. Linux is good for server and coding hobbyist. Not for consumer desktops.
While I was upgrading my virtual pc Ubuntu to version 7 I read here that there was something wrong with mouse support. Did anyone had a solution for it?
I ran into this problem too, it started with a specific Linux kernel 2.6.19 or something. I don't know if its been fixed yet or not.
Thats what you get for trying a distros thats buggy and sucks. Ubuntu's packages come straight from Debian unstable and it shows.

The mouse, along with other features, does not work out of the box. Many Linux distributions are encountering the same problem with the mouse, apparently, because the kernal developers introduced a bug and released a new kernal without
doing proper testing. Despite having many bugs, Microsoft would never release an OS with such a blatant bug (although the iTunes store bug that Vista caused comes close). It will take a while before Linux matches Windows XP.
