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?"

Yeah, that 98% must be comprised entirely of idiots.

I didn't say that. My point, (since you seem to need things s p e l l e d o u t f o r y o u ) is that I don't care what percentage of users use the system I use, as long as it works FOR ME.

Either that, or they simply like using industry standard apps such as Adobe Photoshop and MS Office

Well, since The GIMP and OpenOffice do all I want in that department, and since they and programs like Amarok run without any of the virus- and DRM-infested crap on Windows why should I run APS and MSO?

or they like playing a huge selection of cutting-edge games.

I don't play games, if I did I would buy a console, and I'm not going to use Windows just to keep other people happy - especially not defamatory morons like you.

I don't know who's the bigger idiot.

Really? I do.
