Windows Vista is the current Windows ME. A sooner release date just means Microsoft sees Vista as a weak spot that Linux could gain market share obviously at it's own loss. The only problem for Linux is that even the most polished versions still require you to go in to the console to setup literally everything you'd do in XP without having to go in to DOS. Perhaps instead of having 500 versions of every type of application Linux programmers could concentrate on eliminating the need to constantly go in to the console so even a computer enthusiast such as myself could be much more productive. A major distro I tried a year ago had no option whatsoever to change the audio card and everything has to have a binary/RPM the moment it's released otherwise guess what OS I'll still be testing nightly builds of Firefox and Safari on? Yup, XP.
