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?"

The author is not bashin Windows Vista at all during the actual article. he was simply pointing out that on the forums a lot of people make this claim of switching from Windows to linux.

He basically is seeing how it is for a Window user to switch to linux and use only linux for 30 days. And then posts his conclusions. it is written quite well and he makes a lot of valid good points. But he actually does not sit there and bash on windows the whole time. Of course since it is from his perspective it is a subjective article but it is a well written and balanced one.
