If you are worried about the massive surge in eWaste that upgrading to Vista will produce, you're not alone. One study found that 50 percent of all business computers cannot run Vista Basic, and 94 percent can't run Vista Premium.
What to do, what to do. I think this guy has it figured out. His father wanted the Vista installed on his computer, the son installed the Ubuntu. Natch, dad thinks it's great, best thing to come out of Redmond in years.
I don't think it's so crazy. The Vista release is prepping your users for a change. Doesn't really matter what the change is, and if you don't have to throw out 94 percent of your machines, so much the better.
