SuSE, openSUSE "Sometimes, a service pack comes along that really makes a big difference. Take NT. Before SP3, it was garbage; afterwards Microsoft had its first server operating system that was worth anything. XP before SP2 was so-so, but after SP2, it became Microsoft's best desktop operating system ever (sorry, Vista). And, now, with its SP1 for SLED (SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop), Novell has given an already excellent business desktop a real kick in the pants."

Vista - I've used it. Never Again. So don't criticise from a position of ignorance about me.

I doubt it big time. I've seen people like you make claims - then come back with their tail between their legs admiting they never used it, and the only experience was with their mates woefully underpowered computer.

If you're going to run around promoting you 'alternative' how about addressing issues which stop end users from migrating - the lack of MiniDisc support, the lack of mainstream desktop applications from big name vendors, the woweful lack of hardware support due to Linus's stubborness in regards to a stable driver API/ABI.

OMG - MiniDisc not supported?! I should have noticed that so long ago, but could care the f*%$ less about a Sony propriety disk format. Surely you should have a real reason to use Vista over Linux if you're going to criticize others. Vista is the worst pos modern gui to hit the market. It was a major step backwards for the end user. You shouldn't have to resort to classic look and feel every new Microsoft OS. Seriously, they should sell the gui enhancements as addons and leave the classic as the default.
