Windows eWeek's review of the latest Vista build is pretty positive: "On Aug. 25, Microsoft released to testers Vista Build 5536, the latest in a long line of sneak peeks at Microsoft's forthcoming desktop operating system. eWEEK Labs' tests of Build 5536 show that the operating system is gaining speed and losing quirks as its release nears." They also made a pretty screenshot gallery. In addition, everybody's favourite Microsoft Apple Microsoft zealot is also positive about this build.

Very well said. I'm kind of sick myself of this kind of people distorting obvious facts.

From my experience Linux is fine until you hit some unsupported hardware, or you need to do something more complex than writing a letter to gradma in OpenOffice.

Linux is great for servers and should stay there, unless the developers figure out what common users really want.

"something more" ... does tv watching and recording, video capture, coding (c++, java, perl), sound/radio capture, editing [tex] papers [etc] count as something more ?

for every and each hardware element of ones pc you can find one which is supported; but yes, you need to know what hardware you buy, which is _not_ a bad requirement really, it will only do you good in the long term
