+1 - I learned a long time ago that there will always be tradeoffs to
work, especially when working for someone else.  I'd much rather use a
Windows desktop and work with a GREAT bunch of people that are
technical, smart and friendly than use a Linux/*BSD/OS X/etc desktop
with a bunch of people that SUCK.  Then there's places like Cisco
where the official, supported desktop environment is in fact Windows,
but nobody really cares what you use as long as you get your job done.

Just my nickel...
