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?"

Not really, he picked Ubuntu because that is the Linux distro people are talking about.

Windows users, who are looking for alternatives ask me about Ubuntu. They have not heard of PCLinuxOS, or Mepis, or even a really promising looking one.... Linux Mint.
