Even though most people doesnt see it the way i do... I think Vista wont be so bad... Actually i think it will be alot better then the good old buggy XP.

sooner or later it will become just as user friendly as windows tho (i mean used by overclockers and heavy pc users, not the general public)

Talking of linux, I've just installed ubuntu. I'd say if you want a basic install and everything works it's just as user friendly as XP. More so in some respects as so much is included. On the other hand, if you need to fix anything, or bulid+install anything weird, you're going to be faffing in a terminal window and are up against a bit of a learning cliff.

Ok, so as this has gone a bit off topic into Linux, and I can't see where else to pose this question, as I know nowt about Linux and am thinking of tasting it, where am I best going to get "starters" info, including how to try it while still using MS?
