Linux needs to try harder if it wants to catch Vista

There has been a meme going around in the Linux world that Vista is really a dog and that Microsoft is only managing to make its numbers by jamming the new OS down the throats of unwilling customers. Now I admit I don't use Vista and haven't spent a lot of time benchmarking it against Ubuntu or Mac OS X or any of the other non-Microsoft alternatives.
But I don't have to use Vista to know that it's a lot more than a dog of an OS. Microsoft's recently reported revenue and profit numbers for its September quarter amply prove that Vista doesn't say "Woof! Woof!" when you boot it up.
