I, and i'm sure many others, feel royally s***wed having to fork out $$$$ to get Vista SP3.

So i don't. For now Vista SP2 and as soon as a reliable pirated copy comes online i'll take that without reservations.

Paid MS tax since the 80's they owe me.

It is ok to screwed. LMAO at Vista SP3, I know how u feel yes we should get 7 as a free upgrade but it is not to be. 7 isn't exactly wot Vista was sposed to be tho, we never got Windows Future Storage (WinFS). We was even promised it later as and add-on but it seems the project got shelved after it was supposedly completed.

N.B. Just a friendly warning, the mods don't tolerate any talk of piracy, hacking, reverse engineeering and such, u'll get urself banned.

From the problems there are with just NTFS we should feel lucky WFS was shelved. It was way beyond the scope of a generalist OS producer.

Hi all
Basically comparing Linux with Windows is a bit of a pointless task.
Linux wasn't (and still isn't) intended to be a "Turnkey" desktop system unlike Windows -- just switch on and run your applications.

Of course if you have some expertise you CAN use Linux very successfully as a workstation OS and nearly all the software is free so for those interested enough it can be a fruitful endeavour.

Now of course when it comes to SERVER type software -- well this is where Linux really does come into its own -- but you usually don't want to run a server system as an OS desktop (although it can be done -- a lot of people I know run Windows 2003 server as a desktop OS but it takes a bit of fiddling to get it to behave satisfactorily as a desktop OS).

Talking about the Death of Linux is premature -- Linux and Windows are best suited to totally different tasks -- networking is as everybody can see STILL a real dog with Windows whilst the stability of W7 and the ease of installation make this a really suitable desktop OS - especially for home users or those with limited computer knowlege.

Cheers
jimbo

I agree, I use Linux, I like the multiple desktops when I'm surfing the net, but that's the thing, I only can really use it to Surf, check email, music, and watch some videos. Gaming, vid and pic editing, just about everything else is useless on Linux right now.

Win7 is NOT Vista SP3

There is NO MS tax and they dont owe you a damm thing. And if by "free" you mean steal it, typical of yo linux fanbois.
