In that case, I hope that two years from now, a version of Linux is so user-friendly, I won’t care what Microsoft offers. I’ve heard good things about Linux Mint, but haven’t bothered to try it yet. Being a non-power user, XP does everything I need.
I've been hoping the same for 10 years. I try 4 or 5 distributions every year, but go back to Windows. The Linux community tends to look at user friendliness as a temporary fad.
