Perhaps they could give away free copies at a Linux expo? I understand it's quite a popular way of getting attention for your new distro Smile

Maybe on shop shelves, but AFAIK Microsoft makes most of their money from pre-loaded OSes with new PCs. Once all the major PC vendors start including Vista, they'll be raking in the moolah as per usual!

True....and in schools also, who use the likes of RM, they will find a way of pushing Vista in asap...

Not really... Schools using RM often take years to upgrade; I know my old school will probably still be going through XP-rollout for more of its workstations when Vista arrives.
