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 really liked the content of the article and the included video (which i watched) plus the realm of screenshots and detailed info. Very well written review and good to see this type of material for a change.

It even inspired me to try out beryl in Fedora http://www.linux-noob.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=2793

I give the author of this article full marks for writing a well written piece and providing end users with real information that can help them decide whether or not to jump on the linux bandwagon.

I may even consider trying out Ubuntu for 30 days myself ;)

cheers
