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?"

Talk of going to linux

I hear this a lot, many people on forums and boards will say they are switching to linux and giving up Windows completely forever but rarely does anyone do it. I usually say sure you will, then 6 months down the road its "well I had to download patches for windows yesterday!". I thought you gave up windows 6 months ago? Even if it is possible to use strictly linux there is a lot of talk about switching but no action.
