I've used Windows NLB in production, and it sucked badly.

I didn't suggest it was better than Linux. But it has its uses in some shops.

You need to keep it simple. A Fast Switch is easy to explain, easy to remember.

I take it that was to me. I just right-click, select "Run as..." and type in the administrator info. Fast User Switching won't work on a domain, so RunAs is what I'm used to.

Most Windows users with puny firewall and a NAT router and free antivirus/antispyware software are pretty safe from attack if they just don't run as administrator all the time.

Which is exactly how I'm configured to run at both work and at home, as a limited user. As a matter of fact as this conversation has continued, your only real gripe of significant merit has turned out to be how Windows is configured by default, to give the default user full admin rights. You should have just said from the beginning "Windows users should not login as admin" and we'd have actually agreed instead of it having to be beaten out of you 150 posts later. ;-)

You never read the article, did you? Or the other threads on the same topic.

Find me a respectable US publication and not some foreign BS. You don't fall for that crap do you? LOL I hope not.

Well.... it is Mac or Linux for me when I get my next machine. Vista's going nowhere near my HD.
