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?"

X and printer configuration are already a lot better in Kubuntu compared to Ubuntu, though I guess it has other disadvantages to make up for it... At least it wouldn't use Gstreamer by default, so he wouldn't have had to switch to xine ;-)

Anyway, loved the article as well. Realistic, not flamy, thourough.
