Linux Complaining about Windows Vista is a national past time on Internet forums these days. Windows Vista 'costs too much', 'has onerous product activation', 'requires too much hardware', etc. These complaints are often followed up by a very simple boast: 'I'm just going to switch to Linux'. But in today's landscape, how viable is that statment? Is the threat to switch to Linux an empty one, or is it entirely possible?"

Another one of these Vista vs. Linux articles, as saying anything bad about Vista must mean u love/going to swich to Linux based OS's. I think that's not an objective jurnalism, it reminds me more of a mud battle, sensational infotaiment. Some of us have a genuine interest in software and technollogy and don't want to participate in religious crusades.
I realize that Thom is quite content with Vista and feels he needs to put more of "balanced" Vista rewievs but I personnaly feel surfeited with these kind of articles.
Just my 2 c.
