    I don't think there are any because Windows doesn't have a culture behind it, because 90% of the people who use it don't actually care what they are using its just a tool. Where as Apple users the percentage is much much lower.

    a whole line of windows xp server suites?

    all of microsoft's windows techs (mcse's and such) getting to keep their certifications for life as opposed to having to recertify every two years?

    A .13 micron process athlon which will crush the pentium 4 and be ultra low wattage and thus potentially a great laptop processor...after it debuts as a desktop processor first (i am sure about this one)

    some version of windows and office with availability only on the internet and a monthly charge for using it, plus other software...and using a dummy terminal with your hard drive space in redmond at microsoft?...i would not be surprised is uncle bill wants all info on his servers;)

    as long as they keep the bugs, my pc IT business is safe

    i just hope that the hardware and apps side of IT stays healthy long enough for me to retire with high tech...he he

    one day, however, programmers will rule the roost as hardware will be disposably cheap and everyone will be at least a semi-geek...some say this will happen in as little as ten years...but probably not

    As long as there is a job in networking in 5/6 months for me I will be happy enough. Afterall, the amount of work I have put in with CISCO I'll be annoyed if there is not!

    i just started cisco studies hoping that my home and small business clients will go WAN one day

    at this point, most are not even LAN

    i have two fears about cisco

    1) that they will go out of business...cisco was the backbone of the dot.com revolution

    2) that WAN will never catch on outside of enterprise level businesses with more than 10,000 computers

    3) that a new, cheaper standard will come along and some new company will take over the WAN duties of business...cisco gear is not cheap and that is why so many businesses stay LAN only...linksys is a potential threat to cisco

    i hear you...it takes a ridiculous amount of training to be a true WAN administrator vs the standard Novell or Microsoft LAN administrator

    Not really if you were a PC Zealot. Think of all the mac bashing that you could do? There probably are some PC Rumors boards out there. I visit a couple other boards and everyone has its own community, that's what really make them special. Stranger things can happen given all the crazy people out there.:D

    you're missing something

    the thing you are missing about a windows rumor site is that microsoft is quite open about everything they do, want to know the next 2 oses to come out and when they plan to debut, longhorn, 2003, and blackcomb, 2005. secondly, apple is the all around, the whole system, ms is just the os, nothing more, and so what do they care. people will continue to buy the computers, apple is different, if they announce a g5 is coming in two months, nobody would buy anything for the next 2 months, they'd wait for the g5. apple needs people to buy without waiting and hoping, by keeping their releases secret, the accompish this. windows, and somebody said it perfectly, most people use it as a tool, we all know what the g4 can and can't do, what the specs are on the g5 if it ever does come out, we actually care about it. windows users say "it's got one of the pentium things in it right?" and they are happy. as a pc tech and mac tech, i don't need to go to a rumor site for windows, all i have to do is go to amd.com or intel.com or microsoft.com, and i have all the "rumors" i need.

    With a name like yours, I don't think you're one to judge.

    Actually...

    ...they already released the laptop version of this, but the desktop version isn't out yet (and I'm not at all sure it'll crush the P4, the recent FSB boost helped it a lot. We may have to wait for Hammer to get a P4 killer).

    I heard a rumor that 'Windows' is an operating system but as yet this rumor unsubstantiated.

    Several million people claim to be running 'Windows' however the screenshots I've seen seem to indicate the code is in a pre-alpha state.

    ;)
