Hash: SHA1

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

| ...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...



Ballmer: Vista Is 'a Work in Progress'

| As PC users clamor for Microsoft to continue to support Windows XP, company 
| CEO Steve Ballmer called the Vista OS "a work in progress" at an annual

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 
| thank Bill Gates for his honesty and his openness.
