Microsoft Talks Back To Google's Security Claims
At Cisco, I've found that MacBook Pros are the new "hot" laptop for engineers (320 GB, Snow Leopard, 4 GB RAM, instant on/off, etc. versus dog-slow Lenovos with smaller disks, smaller RAM, etc.). And I'm seeing more and more iMacs on engineers' desks.
To be fair, a lot of those Macs have VMWare Fusion (for those things that absolutely require Windows), but I think the overall goal for the company is to get everything running on Cisco's own hardened version of Linux. It won't happen overnight, but the seeds have already been planted.
On the other hand, Cisco doesn't really bad-mouth Windows. It sees Microsoft as a strategic partner.
How Close Were US Presidential Elections?
I live in a state that went Republican in 2000, and I realized afterward that if a thousand or so additional people voted for Gore, then the whole Florida recount issue would have been moot.
That is the example that I give to people nowadays that say, "I don't bother to vote. I mean, there are millions of people. My vote doesn't count."
If you don't vote, then you shouldn't complain when the you don't like the results of the election.
