Submission + - Computer World Recommends GNU/Linux over Vista (

twitter writes: "How did I miss this beautiful statement of the obvious?

Vista is awful. Everyone knows it, including Microsoft, and now Microsoft's actions have made it clear that Vista is on its way to the Microsoft junkyard ... Vista, even after SP1 arrived, is junk. Using Vista, instead of XP, is just dumb. ... Why not, instead of waiting for 7, which may or may not be any good, try desktop Linux or Mac OS X?

I'd say that using XP instead of GNU/Linux was even dumber than using Vista. GNU/Linux has cost advantages non free software will never be able to match. The sooner you move, the better off you are. Vista and Office 2007 show that the M$ lock in is a dead end. Customer loyalty is rewarded with pointless, work wasting changes."
