LXer: Linux Faithful: Vista No Threat

Published at LXer:

Don't dare ask Linux advocate Eric Raymond when he plans to run out to pick up his shrink-wrapped box of Windows Vista. Mr. Raymond is not alone. The Linux faithful were quick to dismiss Microsoft’s Windows Vista launch Thursday, saying it poses no threat to the adoption of the open-source operating system. Complex Vista pricing schemes and technical features will dog Microsoft and drive people to seek out Linux as an alternative to Vista, said Bruce Perens, founder of the Open Source Initiative.
