If you sit out Vista, what are your alternatives?

| Leaping for Linux
|
| Linux proponents have seemingly declared every year since 2000 as being the
| year for Linux On The Desktop. Linux seems to get better with every
| iteration, but is it there yet? It might be.
|
| I spend about half my day on a Linux box. About the only time I flip to
| Windows is when I have to do something that Linux can’t - like working with
| Exchange’s calendars conveniently for example.
|
| With the new distributions that are constantly coming out, Linux programmers
| have been consistently moving the ball down the field, encroaching on
| Windows’ desktop territory. As decent as things are now, with another 2 years
| of coding 2010 just might BE the year of Linux On The Desktop.

Ballmer says skip Vista

,----[ Quote ]
| ...Microsoft has been stepping back from Vista for some time now. In
| early October, Microsoft quietly announced that it was extending sales
| of XP Professional SP3. In my opinion, XP SP3 is a much better
| operating system than Vista will ever be. Before that, Microsoft
| started fast-tracking Windows 7 and deemphasizing Vista. I've also
| noticed that, after giving up on those terrible Bill Gates and
| Seinfeld ads, Microsoft's equally awful "I'm a PC" ads seem to be
| disappearing off the airwaves...

Holy Crap: Did Bill Gates Just Say Windows Sucks?

,----[ Quote ]
| We asked a simple question: what Microsoft product could have used a little
| more polish before release? The answer astounded us. We would just like to
| thank Bill Gates for his honesty and his openness.
