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."

Right, so all those people and companies who are so reluctant to change over to Vista, are suddenly eager to jump over to Linux/OSX. They might support more older peripherals, but their whole (probably just as old) software catalogue will only be able to run through emulation at best, I can't imagine that most most of the people who cling to WinXP are eager to do that.

Remember, they are not the early adopter crowd.
