Just a friendly warning from a thankful Mac user since Feb. 13, 2006. now if you were considering getting the new Vista, consider the full cost of the OS, the cost of hardware to upgrade (or possibly a whole new computer), anti-virus protection, lost time fighting spyware, adware, malware, and the "blue screen of death". set yourself free, maybe this is the perfect time to 'get a mac.' afterall if you actually try it for a month and don't like it, then you can still resell it on craigslist or ebay, or anywhere else for almost as much as you paid for it. (you can just count the minimal cost that it depriciated the price of 'renting' a machine for a month) if this guy thought he should switch, maybe you should. i'd love to answer any questions you have. :-)
