Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y A Computerworld blog post reads: "You gotta love it. Microsoft has decided that it will ho ahead and kill off easy access to XP on June 30th. On behalf of desktop Linux users everywhere, and our first cousins, the Mac fans, thanks. You've given us the best shot we'll ever have of taking the desktop."

I may not agree with the way the author said it... but it's hard not to think that MS is shooting himself in the foot here.

- I work in a big hospital and Vista is pretty much banned by the IT department.
- One of my friend who bought new PC with vista is cursing as her digital camera does not work well with Vista.
- I am actively telling several friends to just give Linux a try and see. For their use - email, web, managing pictures and music - any Linux is perfectly capable and does not cost a dime.
