This is a point of view that's often put forward. I can't see it myself, though. If you're the average Windows user, and you're not going to upgrade your hardware, why on earth would you suddenly switch to Linux instead of sticking with Windows XP? And if you *are* going to upgrade your hardware, Vista will come pre-installed on new machines anyway.
I really can't see anyone jumping ship from XP to Ubuntu or SUSE simply because Vista won't run on their computers.
