Despite warnings to businesses about the dangers of skipping Windows Vista, many IT managers and CIOs are standing firm that the risks of migrating to Vista outweigh the benefits.

It's really good to see that a growing number of IT decision-makers are finally seeing that there are alternatives to Windows. Not only are the alternatives less expensive, but they are much faster, less resource-hungry, more robust and more secure. They also come with lots of free software too (as well as the OS itself being free).

I use Linux, FreeBSD and OpenBSD and all are very good.

Huh?? The article had nothing to do with alternatives to Windows. The article was about not enough ROI and that most were sticking with Windows XP. Please read before posting.

The article was about firms "skipping Vista". Some firms (already having XP) will be sticking with it.
Others (not mentioned in the article) will be looking around to see if there are alternatives out there (and if they do not, they are poor IT managers).

Please consider the big picture before posting... ;)
