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?"

It's proprietary infestation in the web is a disgrace and sites that depend on it should be shunned. Hell of a good read, pretty typical experience in frank detail, really lets you know what you're in for should you choose that path. Does not mention just how awsome quake-4 is under linux and privateer gaming is pretty damned entertaining, too, must have missed http://happypenguin.org/
