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?"

There's a much bigger selection of cutting-edge games on consoles.

You can be a total gamer and still do your computing on Linux. You can also run MS Office and Photoshop from Linux, using Crossover, if you don't want to use the fine alternatives.

I thought you had given up spewing your anti-Linux crap here...I guess I was wrong.
