Do you agree? To take it of the shelf?
Out of Fedora Core ,PCLinuxOS, Windows Vista (all of them). I personally like Windows XP professional a lot. Even though many people hate Windows because lack of security. I want to just say what sites have you been on? I think they should keep the OS on the shelfs.

windows vista is a piece of crap. it looks kinda nice, but sucks up too much resource - unless you're in the minority of people that likes to do heavy tweaking, Windows XP is stabler, safer, more compatible with various software, and does everything Vista can do.
the reason why microsoft is forcing vendors to ship with Vista - and start fazing out XP - is to force mass adoption of Vista. they need to continue to sell a new version of their OS since it's their golden egg.
