Windows It's been only a mere six months since its first unveiling, but Microsoft has already announced that Windows Phone 7 has been released to manufacturing. This means device makers can start tuning the software to their hardware, leaving plenty of time to release devices before the holiday season.

MOST of my experience is in the corporate world with Windows because (up until 7) I have been a MacOS, BeOS and even FreeBSD user at HOME.

Perhaps our IT crew is just good at what they do, but I've never heard anyone at a meeting or in coffee conversation even mention that their PC crashed.

Don't suppose you'd mind posting their contact info? :-D

That's remarkable, given with the numerous IT conferences I attend and the long list of horror stories I encounter. Kudos to your IT staff.

They are kind of geeky. ;) That coming from a me (a software engineer at said company). Our IT group spans HP Unix, Redhat Linux to Windows ... with individuals who are more or less expert in each. They do a great job.

So maybe that is the problem with other companies, perhaps their policies are not set up correctly or some thing like that, I don't know.

I just know that every OS has its strengths and weaknesses and that in general, if properly configured and used, is safe enough and reliable enough. Even the venerable VMS had flaws (albeit difficult to find and exploit) that I worked on/fixed when I was there over a decade ago.
