I know I'm gonna get flamed :S

Windows has its place in the world. Corporate IT especially, While I use
Linux for backend/SQL/Mail etc, I use windows 2008 R2 Server for user
desktops via Citrix.

I will miss windows :) It has its place. While user education is good and
teaching people to use Linux desktops, In the corporate(REAL) world
especially working for 2 Large Mining firms and now a medium size ICT firm,
it's not practical.... at all...

you missing windows? :-P

I've not missed windows since 1996.

And barring kernel upgrades I agree with him.  I just happen to upgrade the
kernel a lot in some 
VM's I run. (crash and burn so to speak)
