    "So in order to put Vista at the centre of what I do, I would have to buy hundreds of pounds of new hardware. Which may be great news for your industry, but makes me regret never having defected to Steve Jobs. Perhaps now’s the time." :)

    Talking to the IT bods I know, this isn't that uncommon a reaction, in London anyway. Most are saying they're going to stick with XP for the next couple of years, some are looking at alternatives. I bet the Ubuntu download sites are busy right now.

    Whether Mac market share will go up or not, Microsoft's will go down thanks to Vista.
