Windows 7 Over the Mac?

Longtime Microsoft follower Joe Wilcox, who uses both Mac OS X and Windows 7, makes this rather startling claim: "I get about 30 percent to 40 percent more work done using Windows 7 than either Leopard or Snow Leopard."

Joe may get more out Windows 7, but 30 to 40 percent more productive? That sounds pretty steep. I replaced a barely functioning XP laptop with Windows 7, and even though the old machine froze more than a Ben & Jerry's assembly line, I'm only about 8 percent more productive now.

Random thought: Does Ballmer look like Terry Bradshaw? Yes or no answers sent to dbarney@redmondmag.com.
