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?"

Or more likely they don't know about other choices ;)

2% on the Linux desktop is still evidence that Linux is THE choice for people with knowledge.

I wonder what PC-BSD and DesktopBSD can do for FreeBSD in terms of desktop usage. Mac OS X and GNU/Linux has proved there is room.
