The end of May 2008 marks the end of support by Grisoft AVG and other free-subscription products for what was one of Microsoft's better OS versions. Many of us, I expect, will switch to Linux, others will use XP for a while but make plans to move to Linux.
Microsoft's biggest failure was incorporating Defective Restricted Media support into Windows 'Vista', the current incarnation of WinME. This is a major reason for large numbers of users to move to Linux, which does NOT support DRM ('digital rights management', a defective copy protection scheme). Further problems are caused by Microsoft's abandoning the command-line interface and dumbing-down the GUI.
Further comments are welcome.
