	I'm sorry but I really beg to differ with you. Vista sucks it long  
and sucks it hard... I install/personalize that OS on many PCs for  
Geek Squad, and I tell you it's really lame...
	The fact that one needs to install virus / spyware protection on any  
OS.. it's really, really sad. Microsoft is improving their  
development / use model, but it still ain't there (poetically). Some  
devs (in a different respect) are being egocentric and are making  
things shiny instead of usable.
	There's a reason why I recommend Macs to new customers :).
