Windows XP vs. Vista vs. Linux

Mike Ricciuti of CNET says Windows XP is "doomed" and that "most of us will likely be using Vista sometime in the near future" (see Microsoft: All roads lead to Vista). In contrast, Ina Fried of CNET writes that Windows XP may get another reprieve, the title referring to the fact that major computer manufacturers are slated to stop selling Windows XP in June. Who's right?

The story is too old to be commented.

I've been using Vista since the Betas. Never had an issue, it is stable, productive, featureful and good-looking.

SP1 installed without an issue. I'm not looking back.

I am on the same situation here...but this may not be the best place to talk possitive about it.... hehe... this site has become one of the biggest anti microsoft site on the internet... the moment microsoft enter the console business that was the day that most Sony fans turn into windows haters...

Hell, they already started gathering their troops against Windows 7 (formerly known as Blackcomb and Vienna)... and is like 3 years away...

By the way, the only reason most of these haters like XP is because they are trying to convince people not to adopt vista... when Windows 7 comes out.. they will be telling people that Windows 7 sucks and that vista is the best OS on earth... XP history repeats again... if any of you remember windows haters play the same game everytime a new version of windows comes out... when XP came out it was the worst thing on earth.. they said windows 98 was the best...

I just hate Windows because i know how good Linux is. I only use XP because many games require Windows. For all other things I use Linux because it beats the crap out of any Microsoft OS.

If playing games on Vista didn't involve fighting the OS at every turn I'd be a lot more accepting of it.

Enh? The only game that I had trouble playing strait out of the box was my 5 year old coy of Sacrafic(still a damn cool game), so I'm not to sure why you would be having problems...

Linux in all it's wonderfulness will never replace Windows/OSX no matter how much people want it to. I love Linux, hated it at first when my Advance Programming teacher made us start using it, but it takes time to learn. More time than most people are willing to invest when all they use their computer for is some basic word process/taxes/web related activities.

I would love to see Linux become more prominent, mostly because its free, but unless they make the whole system a lot more savvy for the average Joe who knows nothings about computers, it will never take off.
