Windows Computer makers have been told they'll no longer be able to get Windows XP OEM by the end of this year, despite strong ongoing demand for the OS. Analysts and computer makers are wondering if the move is premature given Vista's ongoing performance and compatibility issues. Dell recently said it would reintroduce XP on a range of machines due to customer demand but Microsoft will only allow this until the end of the year.

Why should I assume I'm going to think Vista is anything but a joke if the great unwashed don't?

Because most "reviews" are biased crap. Actually, there were some reasonable reviews, which presented cons and pros of Vista with overall positive conclusion.

The point I was making is that Linux distros are not consistently inconsistent,

Unfortunately they still are.

and that even if they were you have a choice between provider X and provider Y, which you don't get in Windows.

The choice between provider X and provider Y doesn't guarantee consistency, in case of current Linux ecosphere lacking important standarts it makes consistency even worsen.
