That's a horrible analogy; Windows doesn't even attempt POSIX 
compatibility. Now, if you were comparing Fedora to Solaris, that would 
be better :-).

And I happen to expect a LOT of compatibility between Ubuntu and Fedora 
(and Solaris). They're all POSIX, after all. (That said, I'm reasonably 
confident that POSIX doesn't specify VT assignments...)
