Novell and Ximian "Someone just asked me whether, now that Novell's become buddies with Microsoft, I'll be turning away from Novell/SUSE as one of my favorite Linux distributions. My answer is no. I'm sticking with SUSE Linux on both my desktops and servers. Here's why."

You're totally wrong.

First, admins typically recommend waiting a couple cycles of service packs before going to a new Windows version.

Second, MS has extended Windows 2000 support for 8 years. There aren't many other vendors who will support an OS version for that period of time or longer.

Third, the reason that admins don't recommend going to a new version of Windows when it's released is precisely because it takes time to test an organization's applications with a new release. Most problems are generally resolved in subsequent service packs.

There's no such thing as a "forced upgrade artist". That's a figment of your imagination.
