Dear Windows,

I’m not sure how i’m going to say this, but I think our time together is at an end. I’m not sure that we were ever that suited to each other even when we first met; around that time I’d had recently left Commodore and I think I was just looking for something different.

We’ve been together for many years now (15 years I believe) and I’ve seen you change from 3.1 to 95, 2000, XP and now finally Vista. I guess we’ve just grown apart and we simply don’t have the same interests anymore, you’re more into your business work and i’m still just a hacker at heart, which I don’t think you ever satisfied or appreciated. I should tell you that while at University I met Solaris (who knows Unix and Linux) and that’s were my doubts about you started, but even then I stuck by you as they had serious issues which meant I couldn’t imagine living with them.

Many years ago I met Apple at work and although we didn’t like each other at first (OS 7 – 9) a couple of years ago I cheated on you with Apple by buying a MacMini. Now after having fun with Apple for a couple of years I’ve decided that Apple and I are better suited than you and I ever were. You may think this is just a phase i’m going through and you may be right, but I think I need to try, so Apple is moving in next week (MacBook Pro is on it’s way!) therefore i’m sorry to say you’ll need to move out (and BT says I can’t keep you). I’m sure we’ll see each other around the office.

Take care,
