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?"

It must be all those Microsoft ads.

Seriously, I want to see more Linux ads here. Novell has some. Where are they?

OSNews has alot of Linux/FOSS content; it should be suplimented with ads that corrilate to that kind of content. Microsoft's 24/7 Get The Facts engine only serves to annoy readers.

Why can't OSNews pay their bills from other sponsers?

I tried removing Flash player but the Microsoft flash ads are only replaced with GIF ones.
