Linux Complaining about Windows Vista is a national past time on Internet forums these days. Windows Vista 'costs too much', 'has onerous product activation', 'requires too much hardware', etc. These complaints are often followed up by a very simple boast: 'I'm just going to switch to Linux'. But in today's landscape, how viable is that statment? Is the threat to switch to Linux an empty one, or is it entirely possible?"

Windows is not a "necessary evil". I've not owned a Windows PC since Windows 95 was new. I've been able to get along without it for going on 12 years. I do not buy anyone's insistence that we cannot live without it.
