Looks like that PDF I mentioned - the one where the US Dept. of Transportation had announced "Ixnay on the istaVay" - is holding up. I missed this item from March 2nd, where the DOT is looking into switching to OS X and/or Linux:
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has banned Windows Vista, Office 2007, and Internet Explorer 2007 from its offices, and is considering switching its operations to Macs and PCs running Novell's SuSe Linux. The DOT enacted the ban in mid-January, according to one blogger, because certain applications essential to the agency's function can't run on Windows Vista.
Sooner than most people think, Microsoft is going to find the same nasty wall that IBM ran into back in the late 80's and early 90's. They've been hiring people like crazy of late - and that's going to switch to mass layoffs at some point. I grew up in "IBM country" in New York State, and they (IBM) were building like crazy and hiring in bunches when I was in high school and college. By the time I had started working, they mass layoffs had arrived.
