If you're a developer, in all likelihood you can't afford to buy a
faster computer.  And many employers have decided that the next computer
they are going to buy is a Windows machine, which is certainly developer-hostile
enough to cause many a developer to consider a career change into veterinary
medicine, environmental recyling engineer (aka garbage pickup and disposal),
or perhaps kindergarten herder ...
