What it's really like to move to Windows Vista. I saw a couple of articles linked to and they rang some bells. Many of the points made apply to Vista as well as Mac OS X and Ubuntu. So here it is.
People will ridicule you for using Vista.
Particularly those morons who don't have the money to spend $400 on the Ultimate version. Plus $250 on a new video card. Plus $200 and some more RAM. A couple hundred more on a new hard drive. And maybe a new PC altogether when they realize Vista doesn't cozy up to "old" computers. Idiots!
You'll feel like you're in a little club.
A club, you know? Like that club where Brad Pitt kicked Ed Norton's ass!! Wouldn't that be soooo cool!!
People will help you for no reason...
...other than charging you money.
