What do you use for a screen reader in Windows?

I went with vmware for my virtual infrastructure because that's what we use 
in my department.  But jaws is not working real well. I may have to switch 
to nvda.

PS: I'm glad somebody with more specifics chimed in on the productivity 
issue. I mentioned it but I don't feel knowledgable enough to spout off 
about it. But the truth is that a lot more resources have been pourd  into 
Windows apps over the years than linux. It makes sense that it's way ahead. 
I am not being sarcastic when I say that open source software is one of the 
great steps forward in human history. But we've been at it only for a few 
years so far.
