Actually we should have that, as a little more competition in the OS market will be favorable for us in the end
Ready to Linux, do not use Windows, if the OS can google it better
Well this is good news, as they first said they would drop support for XP Jan of 2008, I guess inorder to force the common user to swap to Vista. I'm glad they realized that Vista is not the only possible OS for people.
i have an xp laptop and im installing linux on another system. linux is truly the best os.
I 've read something the other day, IBM refused changing to Vista, i guess this is a big loss for Microsoft.
This could be one of the reasons Microsoft suddenly changed the schedule.
Now there are less and less reasons to stick with Vista... and the more I use ubuntu the more I like it.
this is a great time to migrate to an os like ubuntu, mandrake, or somehing related. saddly for me, ppc linux is complicated
What I'd love to see is for companies like nVidia, Asus, Netgear and Belkin, manufacturers of computer components and drivers, to support Linux. That would then encourage games companies to do likewise (indeed, Bioware's Neverwinter Nights has supported Linux for a while, and continues to be one of the best online RPGs out there). With Microsoft's Epic Fail that was Vista, this might just be the gap in the market that Linux and Mac needs to really shine out and tell the world "You don't need Windows". That would then give Microsoft a not-so-soft kick in the teeth to get its operating system back to the quality of its time that Windows 95 offered.
Simply put: Linux would be ready for mass consumer use if more people supported it.
i think its more an awareness thing. i know i bought a hardrive, a usb drive and a mouse that are all supported on linux. and even if they're not, easliy 90% of modern hardware is compatible. that and most people don't understand linux. much like windows has different versions for different users, so does linux. anyone with computer experience can use ubuntu or yellw dog or anything with the the gnome or kde gui. but on;y an idiot could expect a newbie to use slackintosh or debian.
