Short answer: yes, Mac is a viable alternative to Vista.

Longer answer: but ask yourself what you do, what programs you love, and what you do with a computer before switching to a Mac (unless you want a Mac to do dual boots or run Vista using VMWare etc.)...some programs only run in Windows, and some programs only run in Mac.

From my experience, the Mac programs are really well written, the Mac is VERY stable and it's a joy to use.
However, there are a lot more Windows programs, and some may be very useful to you (to the point you can't do without them).

(FYI: I use a Mac at home for mail/fun, Windows for programming and web development and Windows at work. I used to run Ubuntu as my primary OS as well - also a viable alertnative...but a steeper learning curve.)
