OTOH, you can't update to 64-bit Vista, because there are no drivers.
And what's the solution to that? Have driver producers license and
escrow their source code to Microsoft, so that they can distribute the
drivers with the OS. Sounds like a good idea. Why isn't Linus doing
that? Oh wait, he is. :)
