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."

"...When Windows 7 comes in 2010 I hope it will be even worse than Vista. Maybe then the playfield will level a little bit more so we (the customers) will have choice.

Such a revealing quote... So what you're saying is Windows is such a good OS that it's next iteration needs to be worse in order for other OSes to compete.

Or it could be that there's such a resistance to change, it would take an utter failure for the OS in use to push people to switch.
