My question is "why does Ubuntu not allow me to drag a URL on the the desktop with my mouse like Windows will allow me to do?".

comment How to create a URL link on the Unity desktop
I disagree. Dragging from Firefox to desktop does not work in Ubuntu 13.04 . If I am incorrect, then to do it is a non-standard method (on the mouse) that I have not yet discovered, despite the video link you provide.

Sorry about this question. I want to delete it but the system has it on hold.

comment What are the most common reasons why someone might prefer Windows over Ubuntu?
This answer is too generalized and opinionated without any facts. Can you be more specific (without increasing the length of your answer)? Was there a particular aspect of a certain game that you needed? Was there a certain program you needed?

Even though questions may "tend" to be that way, this question is in no way asking for "opinions". If you want to suggest an improvement to the way I ask the question, that is ok, but I think this question is valid.
