Indeed it is, indeed it is. "Mac? It's just a toy." How many times did we hear that?
carp, you totally cracked me up with ~ took them 10 years for an better Clown Suit for XP ~ I like your attitude, too. The poor suckers deserve the break. And I guess they do.
I just hope I don't live to see the day that Apple becomes so mainstream that . . . Hmmm. I probably won't and they probably will, and a new Steve Jobs will come along with something so much better, so way beyond cool, and 95% of everybody will laugh it off . . . Well, damn. Now I want to live forever.

MS sales were up because businesses avoided upgrading to Vista, and so the OS hadn't been feasibly upgraded for what--a decade? Windows 7 is reaping the benefit of 10 years' worth of delayed purchasing.
Right, somebody didn't read the whole article I posted.

Nail on the head with that observation. It had nowhere to go but up.
That being said, I've been using Win7 for a few months now, and it's fairly decent in itself, and a HUGE improvement over Vista and XP. I would still prefer to use my Mac at work though. There are still too many oddities about the system.

I watch CNBC many AMs while I'm on the Treadmill at the gym... Squak Box is one of the programs that's on at 6 AM. Joe Kernen who hosts the show is definitely proApple and anti-MSoft ! I was shocked he was so vocal. One analyst was talking about the new MS phone and pad they're supposed to be developing. Joe made a snide remark that the phone would probably be like the Zune ! Joe also commented if he tried a MS pad and the first time he saw that damm hourglass, he'd break it over his knee. He praised the iPad and loves it - he says he never has to wait for anything like he did with Windows.
I don't like Joe's political takes, but he is great for economic & financial analysis and his take on computers !
