WOW can you imagine this! What if they switched to Apple products! That would be wild!

U.S. Government Bans Vista, Office 2007 (http://blogs.business2.com/beta/2007/03/us_government_b.html)- Microsoft (MSFT) has run into trouble with a major customer over Vista: The U.S. Department of Transportation has banned Windows Vista, Office 2007, and Internet Explorer 2007, InformationWeek reports. The newly revealed policy forbidding installation of Microsoft's latest software has been in place since.

As a consequence, the DOT isn't just holding back on upgrading to Vista. It's actively considering Apple (AAPL) Macintosh computers, as well as PCs running Novell's (NOVL) SuSe Linux.
