What distro do you use Shmargin?
Also Vista is worse than XP. I'll grant you that it's more stable but I'd rather have an OS that doesn't sap most of my system's resources and crashes once a year (maybe) than one that is designed to use up all of my system resources.
Also .NET has to be the easiest development platform I've ever used followed by Qt.
