Check out Kevin's screenshots on Windows Longhorn. I think he's onto something. Ya know if it wasn't for gaming I would have already switched to Linux and maybe even a Mac. Don't let that get out by the way. Actually I've looked into buying a Mac Mini. I'm sure it'll happen and probably sooner rather than later. With the exception of gaming I can't really think of any good reason to stay with Windows. Linux is very close to being ready for prime time. It just has a few easy of maintainability issues for the more average users to fix but other than that, it's really close. Mac's on the other hand are already there with the exception of software support. I'm sure they can play games just as good as a windows box, if only the support was there for the gaming industry. Anyway, we'll see how it turns out but it's not looking good for Micro$oft.
