Every Mac user should use Windows every now and again, if just to remind you how good you've got it with your Mac(s).

I do... (I have to for work)... and it's not so bad as Mac evangelists tend to make it out to be. Windows XP doesn't crash all that much, although there are some errors that occur when developing that are just a bear to work with. Part of why my Windows experience is better is because I use Mozilla to block popups, Cygwin to fake UNIX, and the corporate e-mail servers and anti-virus progs generally protect the laptop from problems.

But don't say anything that reminds me of Windows 98 or earlier (Windows Protection error... shudder...)

That said, Macs look better, are more stable, and require fewer reboots to get the job done. :-)
