For non-hackers

For those of us who arent hackers or super-nerds, Vista still works better than linux.


Linux still supports only about 1/3 of the hardware that Vista does...without the need of compiling kernel by hand every time you want some new hardware piece to work.

Me, my biggest gripe with Linux is the WLAN support, having to use ndiswrapper to get windows drivers to "work" in linux is a pain

and seriously, as long as kernel devs try to force hardware makers to give away their IP for the +1% of marketshare they would gain, the hardware developers just wont take the bait.
