You said: " You can't compare the usability of a '98 OS with a '03 OS - that's no way to do a sales pitch...Hell your laptop probably wouldn't run XP!"

That was my point. An '03 OS ran MUCH BETTER on a '98 machine than the 98 Windows software that came with it. In other words, modern Linux scaled back to run more efficiently on an old peice of hardware much better than the original software. And as you point out, the new XP probably wouldn't run at all.

PS-- Of course Mac OS X is best ;) The computer I installed Linux on used to belong to my dad. I bought him an iBook and he's never been happier. That's how I ended up with his old laptop.
