Windows "There's a lot of confusion about Windows Vista these days. Many online discussion forums have a great number of users who express no desire to upgrade to Vista. Sure, we've all seen the screenshots and maybe a video or two of Vista in action, but for many it only seems like new tricks for an old dog. Yeah, it's got some fancy 3D effects in the interface, but OS X has been doing that for years now, and it's still Windows underneath, right? The sentiment seems to be that Vista is another Windows ME. Perhaps part of the problem is that people just don't know what Vista has in store for them."

"free to install software without having to worry about oppressive EULAs, free to dispose of my data as I wanted (without being tied to certain applications)"

You do realize that what you said doesn't make any sense, since you can use all open source software within Windows. So what you said sounds like :

"In Windows I have access to softwares from the group A and from the group B. I didn't felt free, hence I switched to Linux where I just have access to softwares from the group B."

Of course there is good reasons to switch to Linux. But not the ones you said.
