Windows Die Hard Switching to Linux?

I recently blogged about Windows Vista woes and while I knew I wasn't alone, I was a bit surprised Jim Louderback from PC Magazine showing such unhappiness as he did in his recent editorial.

In his editorial after ranting a bit about various issues, he ends by saying, "If Microsoft can't get Vista working, I might just do the unthinkable: I might move to Linux."

I came across this article in Steven J. Vaughan Nichols recent blog about Second-rate Vista has Windows fans looking to Linux. He naturally has a Linux angle, but appears to actually use Vista as well and be speaking from experience.

Are these two isolated cases or is there really a move to not adopt Vista?

Comments:

Everyone I know who has Vista is unhappy with it. Most got so annoyed that they reformatted and reinstalled XP. Several have asked me for help selecting and installing some version of Linux (usually in dual boot or LiveCD so they can experiment). Vista has given a huge number of people that last little push to look at alternatives.

xp is going to be the last microsoft os I get also - they are way too bloated - a friend has the 64 bit vista ultimate and it takes 800 megs to just sit there ( i believe that I got that right )...anyways I am moving to astrictly osx/linux network from now on
