But I want a Mac. Waah!

Seriously, it would be nice if MS produced something that was a step forward for a change. Windows 7 seems to be a step in the right direction. It remains to be seen how much damage the Vista detour has done them.

Our company has still not approved Vista for use in our network. This is largely due to Microsoft's arrogance — Vista broke Samba when it came out, and while Samba has been updated by now to work with Vista, we haven't actually tested this on our network. Thus far, it's been simpler to either downgrade any new computers we've bought to XP, or upgrade them to Ubuntu, or just buy Macs. Put another way, we've been gradually phasing out Windows. Win 7 will have to be a major leap forward if this is to change.

Anecdotal, of course, so just consider it one data point.
