news.cnet.com: Glyn Moody has written a beautiful eulogy for the Windows desktop of yore, one that I heartily encourage you to read.

blogs.computerworld: No... Ah stuff; there I was watching the Olympics opening ceremonies when I thought, for just a second, that I saw a BSOD during the run up to the lighting of the Olympic flame.

What is keeping you from switching to Linux?

I'd like to make time for switching my main system but it is not there yet. What I plan to do is however use Linux on my laptop and get used to it this way.
