Well, the primary point seems to be that in a year or so, Macs will be
able to run virtually ANY software. While Windows users will still only
be able to run Windows Apps.

Not earth shaking, but quite nice for us Apple loyalists.

Plus it's going to put a LOT of pressure Microsoft after just announcing
that VISTA is delayed yet again. If they don't watch out, they'll lose a
solid sliver of market share this holiday buying season when people
figure out they can buy another PC and run most stuff - or buy a MAC and
run anything they like.

Having said that, why would I want to run anything other than WinXP on my
computers when it continues to perform flawlessly?

Sounds like you're confusing hardware with software. If I buy an Intel Mac
and only run Windows on it does that make me a Mac user or a Windows user or
both?

This great news has brought Apple's stock up 10% today! Finally, Apple

has
seen the light and is coming over to the Intel/Windows camp.

As for XP, I never thought there was another OS out there since it's the
most secure and stable OS known to mankind. My XP box stays on 24/7/365
without a hiccup.

Hi Rita, who said:

Yes, Great! And, interested to know if it has:
a direct connection to the net,
is behind a hardware firewall (or at least a NAT router),
is running a software firewall other then the built in one,
is used for email (with any form of outlook)
and, could you guess how many security patches you load per month?

(Yep, a reply to that _is_ too much work - glad your machine has been ok.)

Sure, if all you do is let it sit there and run. Try to do something
with it and watch it crap out.
