Windows If you shout something loud enough and many people are saying it, does it become true? Some groups of people (include tech journalists and Linux advocates, such as Steven J. Vaughn-Nichols) have a psychological need to find Vista lacking. Mr. V-N has predicted that Vista will have all manner of problems, so his clear interest is to point out everything that is wrong with the OS. Who cares if he has to even make some stuff up?

SJVN rants nothing compared to MS FUD

SJVN writes some good, well thought out articles. But with others, they come off as anti MS FUD, for which he deserves to be called on.

But I just chuckle when someone complains about anti-MS FUD, when the FUD going the other way is much larger, by orders of magnitude.

When you take into account the MS "Get the facts" campaign, Steve Ballmer's suggestion of Linux IP violation, the hordes of "Analysts", who are on MS payroll (either directly or indirectly), who constantly bash Linux, and then all the "Windows Fanboys" who flame against Linux at any opportunity, and the "sue by proxy" (read SCO) by MS, and I can go and and on, the ranting articles by the likes of SJVN are a mere drop in the ocean in comparison.
