      not as good as MAC OSX tho
      I bet MS would like to write an OS for one set of (expensive) hardware, instead of one which will work on thousands of different hardware configurations made by hundreds of different manufacturers.

      Don't forget who wrote Apple's OS many moons ago!

      Yes, it was our ole friend Bill Gates!

      Now, back to W7. I've gone for Ultimate as it supports multi processors and my Dell workstation has 2 Xeon dual core processors!
