Hardware, Embedded Systems Dell has taken the unusual step - for a PC vendor of its size - of toning down its sales pitch for Microsoft's Vista operating system and warning businesses of the migration challenges that lie ahead for them. The step is particularly unusual because one of the issues the hardware vendor is warning business about is the extra hardware they will need to buy.

It's not the case that advancement in OS design stopped ~35 years ago with the birth of Unix.

Certainly not! Look at GNU/Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris.

I would've preferred ... there'd be a third type of OS commonly in use (besides Unix-based and NT-based).

Me too. But OSes that follow in the traditions of BeOS or Amiga may one day be mature. As may SkyOS. In the mean time, there is a very wide selection of Unix-based OSes and variations to enjoy.
