Windows "Microsoft has just released the latest installment of the Windows Vista pre-RC1 builds, with Vista Build 5472.5 making its way to TAP and Tech Beta tester today, and for once, MSDN Subscribers too. Build 5472.5 is a standard FRE Staged build, only available in English at the moment, though Arabic, Japanese, and German builds may follow. At this point all the builds we are seeing seem to undergoing severe stages of heavy optimization: although faster code normally comes at the expense of larger files as a rule of thumb, this build of Windows Vista packs a punch performance-wise, but is only a 100 MB larger than its predecessor.

More ignorant rambling spewed forth from ChrisA's keyboard. Well, at least you're not trolling Channel9 anymore (at least, I haven't seen you there lately).

Yea you're right Chris. Over the past year GIMP has taken almost the entire market share away from Adobe Photoshop. Most desktop users now use Linux instead of MS Windows. No one uses MS Office or cares about its proprietary formats. Hardware vendors no longer write device drivers for proprietary software like MS Windows anymore, only for OSS like Linux. No one uses Macromedia Dreamweaver, Fireworks or any other Macromedia software because various OSS have just blown that company out of the water. They just can't keep up.

Basically, MS, Adobe, Apple's software division, Macromedia and countless others will all just go bankrupt very very soon. The OSS community will make sure of that.
