Microsoft "Here's a little thought experiment to take into the New Year. Not as difficult as Schrodinger's Cat, but thought provoking nevertheless. Imagine that you woke up tomorrow to a world without Microsoft. Not a world where Microsoft never existed, but one where it hit some hidden critical corporate mass and imploded, or it was discovered that the Windows source code was actually the DNA sequence for red cabbage, and all the directors disappeared to a hidden undersea stronghold. Whatever really... Microsoft existed and now it doesn't."

Well, if I wanted to spend money on a new machine, I'd be very tempted to get a dual G5 Apple now, and I don't think it'd be more expensive than a big Windows machine.
Windows is old, it has no coolness factor, and even though I'm a FreeBSD fan I think having an Apple would be fun and satisfactory.
