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."

I seem to recall how the delay of Vista was predicted to be Linux's big opportunity to gain market share against [presumably] defenseless, aging XP.

And now that XP is being sent out to pasture, this is Linux's big chance against the [presumably] defenseless, new Vista.

Some are even going so far as to say they "hope" Windows 7 is worse to help Linux's chances even more.

Normally, there is logic in the response, but this is just irrational vitriol.
