I didn't even notice that one! I posted before I had read it in depth.
Speak to some of the Windows advocates who lurk around this group. Only today
they claimed that drivers support has been substantially improved, that
security is no longer a peril (said with great hesitance and reluctance) and
that performance is an unimportant factor. Have you seen these gauges in
Vista that "rate your computer" yet? They can be quite tough to beat. They
are an utter insult to their prospective user.
