Tech: Vista the best thing to happen to the PC industry.

| Any one of a number of Linux distributions will run on your existing PCs 
| without cramping overhead; OpenOffice.Org will handle all of your document 
| requirements including presentations and Firefox (and several other browsers) 
| handle your browsing. They work, they are free of charge and our own 
| experience is that once users have spent a couple of days with them, they 
| don't want to go back to Windows or MS Office. Indeed, people that leave our 
| own company ask if we can burn a set of disks for them to take when they go. 
| Some even bring their own PCs into the office and ask for it to be turned 
| into a Linux machine.        
| Vista may well turn out to be Linux's best friend - and as that happens 
| manufacturers are going to have to decide where their loyalties lie - with 
| the consumer or with Microsoft.Those manufacturers have to learn one thing: 
| if he who pays the piper calls the tune, consumers are at last realising that 
| it is their money that keeps the PC industry going. And at last they are 
| saying "hang on - do we need this?"      


Microsoft counts Linux migrations as Vista sales. How convenient.

Holy Crap: Did Bill Gates Just Say Windows Sucks?

| 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

Acer: PC industry 'disappointed' with Vista

| Acer president Gianfranco Lanci became the first major PC manufacturer to 
| openly attack Microsoft over the Windows Vista operating system in the 
| Financial Times Deutschland on Monday.  
| Lanci said the operating system was riddled with problems and gave users and 
| businesses no reason to buy a new PC, according to the report. Taiwan-based 
| Acer is the world's fourth-largest PC manufacturer, after HP, Dell and 
| Lenovo. 
| "The whole industry is disappointed with Windows Vista," Lanci said.
