Well, Windows hardcore will argue that windows is better, so the otherway around. There is a good and bad for all of them and that is the reason for their existent.
I like both and even Mac OS.
Instead of arguing which one better, why not just list which service is NOT needed for car PC use or general (desktop) use for those who install from a distro instead of compile the whole thing themself.
There are a lot of service I don't event know what they are. But my common sense tell me that turn off untill it something doesn't work then turn on 1 at a time. I use this same common sense in both Window and Linux.
