Good article

This is a good article, but the amount of disinformation and just plain ignorance in some of the subsequent comments and links is astonishing. What this really shows is that many of the so-called "experts" and skilled users have not installed or seriously used a GNU/Linux distro within the last few years. They're just taking their opinions second hand from other equally uniformed folks who may have tried Linux years ago and found it difficult, or from corporate entities who have a vested interest in keeping users subjugated on the Windows platform.

I'm old enough to remember the transition of many companies from DOS to Windows 3.1 or 95, and the arguments against change are very much the same now as they were then.
