I found this article very interesting about the current VISTA and the upcoming Windows 7 (2010).<br><br>It does NOT paint a pretty picture for Windows users.<br> Windows Vista, 7<br><br><br>David (OFI)

"Microsoft never aspired to deliver great products; it only ever sought to destroy competitors and spread its brand name."<br><br>Yes, wasn't that an earth shattering revelation Piper !! <br><br>almost as good as the old Claude Raines line in Casablanca !!<br><br><br><br>David (OFI)
Last summer I met up with an old family acquaintance. He just happens to be as zealous about Microsoft as I am about Apple. It's made for some interesting arguments, sometimes quite heated. The subject came up about my retirement portfolio and I mentioned I'd bought more AAPL. You'd think I'd just said I chopped off my head. This fella went all red in the face and frothing at the mouth about how Apple was dying and should be dead. My money should be in MS according to him. HE would NEVER buy Apple shares. I calmly explained to him that it was him who was in the wrong. Apple is growing, MS is dying.<br><br>Look at Microsoft's earnings. They are down. The shares are flatlined and have been for some time.<br><br>Here's an interesting take on the whole Apple/Microsoft issue. Elephant in the room?<br><br>
LO..posters comments..<br><br>Ray M<br>Apr 25 11:13 AM<br>Apple has finally learned how much of a premium (not much) their stuff can really command plus they really have something with the MacBook Air. I have used NT based OS's since the Beta program for Windows NT 3.0. Vista is such a travesty that my next purchase will almost certainly be a Mac of some sort. Worse, my latest HP machine will only run Vista, so they are losing my business as well. Windows machines made sense (even with all the warts) when they were half the price of a marginally better Mac. Now with better (technically and compatibility) and relatively less expensive Mac's, Microsoft only has its inertia going for it.<br>sbjforever<br>Apr 25 11:55 AM<br>How could the reason be any other? Isn't it a no-brainer that each first time Mac buyer (50% of sales according to Apple) would have had an existing PC? What is it thought these folks new to the Apple brand previously had in their dens - Commodore's?<br><br><br><br>
The sticking point for most enterprise seems to be proprietary apps that make it impossible to switch to OS X. There HAS to be a market out there for application developers to work with enterprise clients. I know many apps are going web based. There's definite job opportunities there for talented individuals.<br><br>
