Paul, your blog is so full of fighting with Windows bugs, so please try MacOSX yourself. It'll solve many of our problems.
Yeah I'll enjoy trying to use Mac OS X on a Tablet PC won't I... Oh yes...
MacOS works cool on my Tablet PC (Lenovo X61). You can say it's in no way a simple solution, but you can also try something like Axiotron (macbook converted to a tablet).
Windows seems like a nightmare after all. btw, I _was_ a Windows fan since 3.11.
The notion that Mac OS X has better Tablet support than Windows is laughable. How's handwriting recognition on Mac OS these days? How's OneNote on Mac OS these days? Exactly.
Instead of OneNote you can use Evernote or Curio or MacJournal. There are a lot of them. Handwriting recognition is very tough on Windows and is very tough on MacOSX. I don't even use it because it's a mess on both platforms. Waiting for Apple to reinvent it :) Because as we can see MS has failed with Courier.
All second rate to OneNote.
Anyone who says handwriting recognition is "very rough" have obviously never used a Tablet PC running Windows Vista or up. It is quite frankly stunningly accurate.
Sorry, I'm running dual boot MacOS/Windows 7. Windows 7 in my opionion is far more better than Vista. But handwriting is a pain, the old good keyboard is much more faster when entering text, writing letters, coding.
Pen is very good for painting and drawing.
It seems that in the truest sense of the term, no one can FUD MS. FUD is intended to stop the adoption of a specific software solution, but Microsoft products are already widely adopted.
Google's main competitor is Microsoft? I fail to see how.
OK, Mac might not have good security (I wouldn't know, as haven't used an Apple product since we had Apple II computers in elementary school), as it follows a BSD distribution paradigm, similar to that that Windows follows. I'm unaware of how Linux has more security vulnerabilities than Windows. Are you just talking about the kernel or about all the packages that Linux distro X might include? It's also worth noting that Unix-based systems do tend to be able to control security problems better than Windows, because there's much less need to run in root in Unix than there is to run as an Administrator in Windows; it's such a pain that I doubt many people even set up Limited accounts in Windows.
Plus, there's always ActiveX, a cracker's dream come true.
