Although this is a bit OT, I feel, I must now strengthen Microsoft. :-)

Since W2K, the quality of Windows has dramatically improved. As sad as 
it is, noadays Windows is running stably just as Linux and also pretty 
secure (if, admittedly, firewalling and antivirus are there) and while 
it does not offer freedom and versatility like Linux, most users find it 
easy(er) to operate and do not find a good reason to switch. So we Linux 
guys will find it hard to accept, but the competition does not sleep and 
it surely is not NT4, anymore.

Just my experience from years of Win/Lin
