Windows Vista Linux? [HUMOR]

 In an apparent marketing strategy shift, Windows Vista (tm) has been 
re-branded as "Windows Vista Linux". 

There was no press release announcement on the official Microsoft 
website. It would appear this product shift is one of many trial 
baloons being considered by the Microsoft product team in an effort to 
reverse dismal market uptake of the Vista product line. 

An example of this new product marketing is visible at the 
website. Searching for 'Linux ATI' at it shows the ATI 
video cards are supported on the 'Windows Vista Linux' OS

A computer industry pundit offered the explanation that this seems 
like a logical progression in the product evolution: "When operating 
Windows, and looking out at the Vista, all you see is Linux".
