It is official I guess, I have finally made a full and complete switch to Windows 7 from Snow Leopard. After getting back from my vacation to NY over winter break, I went to turn on my computer...and nothing happened. My iMac, after three and a half years died. The hard drive had decided that life wasn't worth living and decided to throw in the towel. Once this had happened I decided what the hell, lets replace it with a computer I could afford to fix if it something like this happens again. So far I really like it, but mostly because its so much like snow Leopard. That and I scored this amazing hand-me-down 30" monitor. Love it.
