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."

Vista was one of the best things ever to happen to GNU/Linux because: (1) those who didn't want to upgrade either stuck with XP or went out and actually tried a Linux LiveCD; (2) Linux is far better suited for new, small device computing (EEE, OLPC, etc.); and (3) Vista is ass-awful, no matter how you cut it -- the ways are myriad.
