Vista Woes and Blithe Ignorance

My friend Michael sent me the following NY TImes Story, "They Criticized Vista. And They Should Know."

"A colleague's had a glossary of various definitions of "IBM." My favorite is of course "I Buy Mac." 

Having just upgraded to Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5) I am happily using all my "old stuff," along with some new software that was upgraded for Leopard users in mind. Oh yeah - in 3 years (this may) I haven't had one virus infection, only 2 system crashes (with the very first version of "Tiger" 3 years ago), and it just seems to connect and work. Even Lotus Notes runs natively and hasn't crashed since I moved to its GA release from the MAC beta. 

What's this got to do with Microsoft? Nothing. I think that's the beauty of it.

Hey Ron -- I saw a link over on Slashdot last week pointing to a "Mac @ IBM Watson" pilot and thought of you... since you've been using Mac technology successfully for years at work! Here's the link:
