I went the other direction and bought a new Dell laptop with Vista and Office 2007. I haven't thrown it out the window yet, but the learning curve is very steep, especially for all the hype about the new Office's usability. Microsoft has a bad habit of making dramatic changes just for the sake of drama (to sell more product).

I have used various operating systems in the past - OS X for about 2 years, while I was the happy owner of a PowerBook and for about 6 years, all versions of Windows (95, 98, 2000, ME, XP, 2003 Server). Vista convinced me to drop Windows for good - after trying to use it for about 6 month, after hundreds of hours of slow updates and solving MS software compatibility issues (SQL Server, Visual Studio) I madly gave up. It's more than a half of year since I switched to Ubuntu and I love it. But I do believe that Mac OS X is the most advanced OS today and it's very likely that my next portable will be a Mac Book (Pro, hopefully :) ).
