I believe that Vista will feature a network projector capability. It's one of
its few 'selling points' (as arcane as its use may be), which Funkenbusch
once argued Linux does not have. Apart from gaming, it is difficult to find
areas where Linux is deficient in comparison to counterparts and _even that_
is the result of narrow-minded or arrogant games vendors. In many areas
(supercomputing, distributability, transparency, stability, etc.), as a
matter of fact, Linux is well ahead of its competition.
