Nosredna Ekim: With my Acer Aspire 5050 I received a free Express upgrade to Vista Premium. After all the talk of DRM, and low performance I at first shunned it as a clearly inferior OS, but my curiosity got the better of me and I had to try it out.

the Register: Here's a poser for you: could there be anything more frightening than a bunch of open source geeks (proud ones, at that) milling around the mean streets of Edinburgh? Well, yes. How about if you put some of them in special Debian kilts?
