That Didn't Take Long.

This past Friday, I received a humorous email from a friend.  It contained the above photo. Well, it didn't take long before someone, somewhere decided to knock Windows Vista using the "Miracle On The Hudson" as the backdrop.

Before I go any further, I'd just like to say "Kudos" to the pilot, the co-pilot, the rescue crews on the Hudson river, and all involved that helped make this the "Miracle On the Hudson."

And because of their fast action, training, and success, folks are alive and well.  Again, kudos to all.

Okay, back to Windows Vista.  Let's face it, Vista has had a whole host of problems and becaue of these, gained a lot of bad press.  It gets tied to current events (like the above photo) and parodied all over the web.   Because of it's reported lousy performance, Microsoft is now pushing Windows 7 as the next great thing.  Windows Vista will join Windows ME as a a piece of MS history the company will want everyone to just forget.

My advice is to just get Linux.   You'll have a stable and secure operating system with a support community of millions of users.

When you run Linux, all your Microsoft problems disappear. No viruses, no trojans, no spy ware.  And MS won't be looking over your shoulder.   (More on this in a future blog post).

Get Linux.
