    I've upgraded to FC5 on my play around system at work. Looks very nice. Vista can wait.
    My kind of woman!

    FC5 is great and with what's in store for FC6 - Vista isn't likely for my future
    Why are you not using Fedora Core?

Until now it's always been about comparing the latest Ubuntu with XP, which is now 5 years out of date. It will be very interesting to compare 6.12 to Vista.

    Hopefully Ubu will have dumped the default look by this time. I've gotta say, 6.12 is going to have to come out with something better than the Human theme to beat that glass windowing look in the latest Vista. I know people have mixed feelings about it, but I think it looks gorgeous.

    For those unfamiliar, see here for example
