well here it is. I use both windows and Linux ( and gasp I like them both) I use Mandrake redhat windows 98 2000 xp home and pro vista rc1 etc etc etc. and you know what I am not for or against either of them they both have very good and very bad points. and like it or not no matter how much you scream people will not leave windows for linux, at the most they will do as I have and learn and use both. I started M$ ( yes they deserve the dollar sign ) in 1985 used a dec then dos first windows was 3.0 on from there same with linux. Vista has its great points and yes it is very overpriced.
My only hope is people reading this will consider reading about linux or download and burn a livecd to get the hang of it without commitment.
