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?"

RE[3]: 64bit

90% of people ... won't *need* what 64bit brings ...

That reminds me of a guy I met back in '81 that said a similar thing as he steadfastly declared that CP/M can do all you need to do in only 64KB, so you don't need an IBM PC with 128KB that runs PC/DOS.

Personally, I find 512MB is plenty of memory for my software development, browsing and office-app needs. But the growth in demand for more is inexorable.
