Most people don't have experience with NT, they know of Win 3.1 or Win 95.
I don't think those offer much to those who like Mac.  I will wait to see
what Apple's Rapsody System software can do and how well it is supported by
developers.  If that fails, then Apple will be in serious trouble for the
long haul. Right now Apple has the fastest single processor graphics
desktop machines on the planet (G3s), but that will change every now and
then. The studies still suggest it is easier to be more productive with a
mac interface, but they just need more bullet proofed system software, and
faster networking.  Setup is still easier in my opinion.
