Agreed, XP with SP2 is pretty sweet, At work we've skipped Vista all together 
and are evaluating Windows 7 - looks pretty good.

Oh yeah ... We have a large number of clients we have to inteorp with, the 
Asian ones have a chronic tendency to jump the gun. One of them upgraded 
several thousand desktops in one go to Vista Beta One - that was a nightmare 

OTOH lots of them run locked down Terminal Server/Citrix environments, they do 
pretty well.

In House we run a mixture, and we're very interested in moving to open source 
web solutions. This is where mono gets a lot of attention. The ability for us 
to deploy a license free blackbox virtualised server (VMWare images etc) is 
very attractive.
