Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y A Computerworld blog post reads: "You gotta love it. Microsoft has decided that it will ho ahead and kill off easy access to XP on June 30th. On behalf of desktop Linux users everywhere, and our first cousins, the Mac fans, thanks. You've given us the best shot we'll ever have of taking the desktop."

- One of my friend who bought new PC with vista is cursing as her digital camera does not work well with Vista.


I predict the following: a small number of people with geeks for friends will switch from XP to $DISTRO while Vista works out its kinks. When Windows 7 comes out, they will switch back because there's one retarded app they just can't live without.

W7 is already being touted by Microsoft as Vista with better driver support (read "better" as "regression in kernel's driver interface to XP code"), and you can bet this point will be astroturfed across forums like mad.
