This article focuses on the author's decision to switch to Apple PowerBook G4 than buying another Windows computer operating system. He decided not to go back to using Windows while Microsoft Corp. does not make any particular effort to help. And he further realized that Apple Computer Inc. could do more work more efficiently with fewer crashes. But despite his personal attempt to jettison Windows, the author's company and his customers are still tied to Windows systems and file formats.
