Or, alternatively, they can relearn all that stuff because Windows
Vista and Office 2007 are 100.0% completely different from the versions
they replace.

I make a living handling such problems for people for money; believe
me, the only cost of running Windows isn't *remotely* the sale price of
the OS.

Our Unix and Linux clients?

We never touch their boxes.  Literally.  I might get 3 or 4 calls a
year per client, in a bad year.

Thank ghod for me the clients *want* to run Windows; I'd be poor.
