Earlier, you say that anecdotal evidence is worthless, and yet you use a personal anecdote to dismiss Linux. I have my own anecdotes: Linux installed with no problems on my home machine. And the upgrade from RH 5.1 to 6.1 was even easier. I have a friend who's one of the biggest MS bigots I know. When he wanted to install a firewall to protect his home LAN, guess what he used? Linux.
