    I'd say systems vendor of the year should go to Dell, rather than HP. They've pushed out some consistently high quality kit this year. A lot of the rest I don't know too well but they seem agreeable.

    I agree with HP being the systems vendor, very high quality kit, very reasonably priced and good warranty support (so far).

    Not sure about the storage vendor being Symantec though.

    I think they missed a word off the start - shi**iest. That's the only award Vista would win.
    I think they are referring to Server 2008 which in my opinion is a good product.

    2008 is at best OK. It would be great without the stupidity of vista having been integrated into 2003. It could easily have been bettered by a 2003 R3.

    For example, how long do you spend waiting for the event log to load on 2003 compared to 2008?

    Agreed; it is slow, but look at the data you get from it - there's is now so much more stuff available from that central console. Not really had to use it in anger yet so I've now idea if it would actually help but it does look as if it should!
