time to loosen Windows-dependence

According to Roughly Drafted, IBM has begun to take a serious look at Mac OS X for their own internal use.

This is arguably more meaningful than it would be if the company in question were, for example, General Motors, since IBM has more than a little reason not to love Apple, given Apple's abandonment of their PowerPC processor line.

It serves as yet another signal that Windows' hegemony is nearing its end, and that all are well advised to avoid further entrenching their dependence upon Windows and Windows-related proprietary technologies.
