Face it, Vista will be massive. This not because people will be
installing it, after all who wants to get robbed? It's $100 in the US,
£100 here! SCAMARAMA!!

But when people buy a new computer you will be getting Vista in it, like
you did with XP. Where linux wins is when people start to discover what
a pain all the built in DRM in Vista is. How after it's been out for six
months to a year there will be virus problems etc.

So, rather than worrying about Vista, us Linux users should be aiming to
'convert' people who get sick of it.

I was looking at a Vista PC today, yeah, Vista looks nice, very rich in
eye candy, but who will care about that after they've been using it for
a while?



Cock, lock and ready to rock!
