    Re: why ditch Vista?

    Microsoft Windows is probably half the reason Linux is thriving today. If Microsoft would listen more closely to its customers and design its operating system accordingly, there would be more support for it! Sadly, on top of being closed source, Microsoft places too much emphasis on "intellectual property rights"; they implement serial keys and block modifications (even if the intent is to improve the system). Ubuntu supports free software and encourages contributions from developers everywhere! There is no guilt in trying to tweak the system. Once people discover how powerful and friendly Ubuntu is, there really is no reason to return to using Windows. Ubuntu runs faster and more efficiently. Vista, on the other hand, eats up too many resources and kills laptop battery life.

    Everyone has his or her own set of reasons. Sometimes, people need Windows-specific software, so they keep it around. Otherwise, Linux offers more freedom.

    Where to begin!

    A plethora of versions – the only worthwhile versions being colossally expensive and Vista ultimate gives you less than Ubuntu for free.
    So slow a dual core PC with a Gig of ram crawls on Vista as for a laptop with 512 Megs of RAM and Vista basic is so slow its utmost unusable.
    An interface that is so Wizard driven it's unintuitive I'm trying to remember how to change the IP address of a network card on Vista > Control panel > network sharing control center > view status > properties. How do you change the monitor refresh rate without searching in help?
    Why will Vista business not join my domain, Win 98, Windows XP and Vista do. Oh and the error message is nonsensical.
    Extra slowness why does explorer take up to 30 seconds to show the network or the contents of a folder every time you open it?
