I've had Vista Business (my school has a deal with e-academy.com) since before Vista was released in the public. One cousin has Windows Vista Home Premium in his laptop. It runs fine, but it is a beast of machine: AMD Turion 64 X2 TL50 (2 x 1.6GHz), 1GB DDR2, 120GB HD SATA I guess, and 256MB NVIDIA...

Tabrown, nobody here doubts that Linux isnt ready for the desktop yet IMO. Sabayon, PCLos, SuSe, Mephis, Ubuntu, Pioneer, KateOS, Mint,...Gee, who did I miss... Are all ready for prime time desktop use, and in fact ALL OF THEM are far superior to anything M$ could even contemplate doing. Windows, a...
