Windows If you shout something loud enough and many people are saying it, does it become true? Some groups of people (include tech journalists and Linux advocates, such as Steven J. Vaughn-Nichols) have a psychological need to find Vista lacking. Mr. V-N has predicted that Vista will have all manner of problems, so his clear interest is to point out everything that is wrong with the OS. Who cares if he has to even make some stuff up?

I don't agree with all of author's arguments but I agree with his conclusion: SJVN is too biased, to the point I'm not reading those rants anymore (which is unusual for me, because I use to read about Linux, though I'm not using it. I also read about Solaris, xBSD and sometimes about little OS projects too. I use to like to read people's opinions though I'm still happy with my Vista choise.).


Plonk me in that catagory. I love reading about the interesting things that are occuring in other operating systems and software - whether or not I use them. It would be nice for people to just be happy with what they have rather than feeling the need to push their choices onto others, and bash those who happen to run a particular operating system which isn't the same as their own.
