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.

Yeah you Linux lovers, you don't like it when you hear the truth do you? You wonder why you only have a piddly 1-2% of the global populuation using your operating system choice, don't you? Just keep sticking your heads in the sand, and lashing out at anyone that dares "bash" your beloved Linux and you'll stay with the dregs.

Modding me down won't change the truth of the matter, it just proves the idiotic fanaticism that you guys have. Good luck!

Dave, I don't think the Linux lovers were modding you down. It was the Windows XP lovers. The Linux users were simply ignoring your dumb rant.

They're almost as idiotically blind as the Linux lovers. Many of them haven't even tried Vista for any length of time. They have old hardware that doesn't work? Boohoo. Talk to the manufacturuers to get off their lazy asses and write drivers that support Vista.

I'm highly likely to switch from Canon to Nikon after 20 years, and lose probably 10k in lenses during the swap, because Canon is too ****ing tight to write 64 bit drivesr for my Mark IIn. Of course, before I do so, I'll be doing everything I can to complain about Canon's behaviour. I find it completely reasonable that for a 3 year old, 6k camera, for Canon to be compelled to write drivers for Vista 64 bit by the powers that be. Of course, we all know the collusion and favouritism that big business gets from governments, at the expense of the population, it's a big FU really. So, I'll vote with my wallet. Sony & LG are already on my exclusion list, I'm not afraid to add Canon, or any other manufacturer to that.

I ain't rolling back from Vista because of Canon, or anyone else. These manufacturers don't deserve to be in business for what they're doing, and if any of you sons of bitches had any balls, you'd be taking similar stances. When money dries up, that's the only thing these big companies understand. Time and time again they screw people over, and people bitch about it, but don't do anything about it. You deserve what you get then.
