I think job security, world peace and worldwide action on climate are included implicitly under "Snow obviously" :-)

Lets hope all of us make it into 2010 unscathed.

two monitors and a laptop that has a convenient method of connecting them. Also, there doesn't appear to be an ability to "vote" without posting a comment

Why are more people voting for IE6 upgrades when if all browsers worked the same when rendering pages we wouldn't have to worry about it.

Mike - not sure what you mean about posting a comment to vote. Vote should work just fine (poll is on zohopolls.com)

Looking at this web page, it is not obvious that you are meant to click on the "What would .." link unless you hover over it with a mouse. Even if you follow the link to Zoho polls, there is no evidence of a "Vote" button and it is left up to the user/browser to figure out that they need to click on their selection in order to vote. Not exactly what you would call "user friendly" !

Mike - what browser are you using?

The poll is really easy (and clear) to vote on. There is no need to click on "What would" nor go to zoho.

All you need to do is click on the option you prefer - you should be seeing a vertical column of choices each starting with a round button to click on.

VS2010 and a nice shiny new laptop to run it on (preferably Windows 7) win hands down.

1920x1200 on a 32" monitor?
You must be near-sighted.

I've 2560x1600 on 30", ahh paradise...
Until it broke down couple of weeks ago, still waiting on Samsung customer support...

Why wasn't VS2010 RTW/RTM not an option?
The rest is sort of mandatory!

Best whishes!
And a warmer climate, its freezing of here :)

I would like snow on Christmas Day of at least 6 to 8 inches, just to see the small children wake up with joy on their faces and say "oh great, santa's been!!!" They they go out and play to make a snowman, roll around and slay.

Also, two 1920x1200 32inch monitors would be nice.

Merry Christmas everybody and Happy New Year!!!
