Esme Vos and I share alot of the same viewpoints. We both like posh hotels, fine dining, travel, wireless and on MuniWireless. Today when I saw her post about going non-PC, I couldn't agree more. This is more about going less Microsoft.
Basically as more and more of us live connected to the cloud and as Mac and Linux users figure out that first before the Windoze crowd wakes up, you'll find more of the tastemakers moving in that direction.
On my Asus eee PC I use Open Office, Thunderbird and Mozilla. On the Mac I'm using Mailplane and Google Mail for a cloned account of my Exchange server. At week five of my experiment I'm relying less and less on Microsoft Exchange. I'm even using Google Apps more each day.
