Like I said, if you cared enough, you'd save up for Vista.
I was just quoting you because you said you ran minimalist distros on your laptop, and that is one of the best things about Linux is that there are distros with lightweight WMs that can be used to make use of hardware that isn't Vista-capable as Microsoft pushes XP out of existence, I wasn't specifically talking about people on this forum, or enthusiast users persay.
I'm just saying, some people don't care. Say my grandmom (I don't have any more of those, they're both dead, but just go with it
) needed a computer, but didn't have much money, I could get a cheap AM2 motherboard with integrated video, 256mb ddr2, a single core Sempron, and a cheap CD drive (and possibly a 40gb harddrive if she needed to save pictures or something...if not it could just run from the live CD) and it would run super fast thanks to Xubuntu.Edited by Redmist - 12/25/08 at 7:07pm
