    No, I don't think so ... I would love to be proved wrong and we may see an influx in users to 'try' Linux, but, ... naw.

    MS will insure, via incentives, that 99.9% of new PCs will be bundled with Vista ... manufacturers are already on 'the bandwagon' touting Vista ready this-n-that ... you may even be allowed to buy XP instead. yeah right. :rolleyes:

    A lot of us enthusiasists who got the chance to try-out Vista have been quite surprised ... it is not what MS had hoped, some of the new technologies have not been implimented and some have even been pulled. But there is enough to make it 'different' from XP and I'm not just talking AeroGlass.

    The reason Linux will not "win-over" users is quite simple ... Games!

    That, is not the fault of Linux.
