Windows Vista Ready?

| The majority of new members and guests are here because they want to install
| Windows XP on systems which came with Vista pre-installed. Others are dual
| booting with XP and Vista because they do not want to, or are unable to
| solely depend on Vista to do what they need their systems for.

Linux ready for the desktop

,----[ Quote ]
| McLaren said the cost of security alone in the standard desktop, is at
| least "50 percent to double" that of Linux.
|
| He believes the primary inhibitors to large-scale Linux desktop adoption
| are Windows applications, especially Excel macros, and a perception of
| a large training cost associated with the move.
|
| "There will always be a migration cost for any large project, but this
| will be dramatically lowered over time," he said. "You need take a
| long-term view and realize security and admin costs will be lowered. We're
| not saying everything should be moved over at once."
|
| McLaren cited car rental company Europcar as having "success" by moving
| call centre people and branch office systems to Red Hat's desktop.
