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?"

I agree, PCLinuxOS and Freespire would have been better choices. But it could have been worse, it could have been called "Thirty Days with Vista".

Or one day with Linux XP.

Wait until you see the 30 boot (not 99) evaluation period and proprietary Java tools. After the 30 days your Fedora Core 3 clone locks your user-account.

Linux XP's massive repository of *eight* packages is also amazing.
