Submission + - Sci-Fi Writer John Ringo vs. Vista, Word, & DR

Ruach writes: Sci-Fi writer John Ringo writes a detailed description (almost a short story) of the PAIN of having to upgrade to Vista when his XP laptop died — hint he made a mistake "a BUNCH of my songs are from MSN Music, which has been closed down." It is so long his web master put it into a PDF.
If this is the future of DRM computing — Linux will take over the desktop. A quote from near the end of the article, "If anyone can set me up on Linux, I might as well switch over. But I'm going to need major hand-holding. I've been an MS slave for a long time. But Vista has broken me." — John Ringo
