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?"

You have to first have to find out why the person is moving and whether their hardware is compatible; if Windows is unstable, is it due to crap being loaded on by the halfwitted end user, or them tweaking with crap they know nothing about, is it because their hardware is plain well crap?

Or maybe they want to leave Windows because they are tired of having to worry so much?
