Enough about Vista, what's up with Linux?
Subject: General Tech | May 26, 2006 - 12:59 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
Vista news is becoming much like a Soap Opera, with new characters and devious plots introduced almost weekly, and a story line that could drag on for years. So switch your channels to XYZ computing, and check out what's new on Linux.
"With Microsoft taking a beating because of Vista's problems and delays, it is time for desktop Linux
to step up and experience some considerable growth. Right now, with Vista and Microsoft garnering very
low approval ratings, desktop Linux providers need to be more aggressive about their marketing and get
their message to concerned consumers. This should not be thought of as kicking Microsoft when it's
down, but the fact remains that a lot of people, even dedicated MS fans, are disappointed with what
they know about Vista and what they have been hearing about the company in general. This means it is
an ideal time to present people with a viable option."
