+1 Vista is crap. But saying it to someone who has just foot the bill
for a copy will turn people from Linux to protect their investment.
This is where promoting how much the linux apps have come on is
important. I'm with you popey. A good well produced piece of
literature is far better accepted than just saying it's good. I think
aswell it will be a good idea to promote the open cd programs so
people can try them on windows and say "this is good I wonder what the
rest of the software is like?"
