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 raise and excellent point. There is no reason to force GPL software only to reamin on Linux. All that does is doing the same thing that most Linux users hate about Microsoft. They are making software that is propietary that runs only on one type of OS.

So I agree with you: Share the software!
