[shrug] Guess I’ll go to Linux when my Vista machine finally ceases to meet my needs. That windows 8 looks like the dumbed-down menu GUI that came with Packard Bell PCs back in the wee 90’s. No thanks.

“Guess I’ll go to Linux when my Vista machine finally ceases to meet my needs.”

You just might like it! I got fed up with MS years ago, starting with XP’s copy protection. Make too many hardware changes, and XP acts like you’ve stolen it. Then the unnecessary redesign of Vista’s user interface, forcing me to relearn how to operate Windows. Uh-uh, not doing it. That’s when I jumped ship. Someone had given me a new Dell loaded with Vista Ultimate. I took that suckware off and installed Ubuntu Linux. Been happy with that computer ever since. I run different versions of Linux on six computers and have never had any headaches over keeping viruses off my machines either.

I guess some Linux detractors will come along and tell you how hard/limited/terrible Linux is. Whatever. Some people continue to live with abusive spouses too.
