Windows ITWire: "Linux users can, at times, be the worst kind of ingrates, whining and complaining about what they perceive as missing features in a free operating system. My advice to all such whingers: spend 10 days using the latest version of Windows and you'll realise that you are living in a world of relative bliss."

You can't ignore Windows even if you're a hardcore linux/mac user. Windows has a huge market share, so it is an important OS, no matter how bad we think (know) it is. Software development depends on this, web development depends on this (remember, most of those users still use IE), security of many many machines/servers, other operating systems are in some way forced to make some features similar to Vista available if they want non-geeky users to addopt their product, ... Again, you can't ignore it.
