No offense, but Linux is not gonna have any chance at
competing with the marketing drive of Microsoft over
the next few months. Vista is the BIG thing in the IT
world at the moment getting all the attention and
until the novelty wears off  and that blows over it
will stay the big thing. The press simply wont be
interested in little Linux when the big guns are
making a new release. The Mac advertising campaign has
got very agressive in recent days too.... linux
doesn't really have much of an advertising campaign
and isn't visible on too many popular sites in the
form of banners or mentions and because of this Linux
is largely going unheard, unseen and unnoticed on most
major sites and tv stations. Vista and Mac are both
being advertised regularly on the most popular sites
on the world.
