pinwheels or vertical wind mills?

Sometimes I see wind mills like trees between here and Sandusky or a stretch of Lake Erie. Giant pinwheels have the Holland air about them no matter now modern design disguises them. Was reading Popular Science, they had a picture of a huge vertical wind turbine...............

This the Maglev, a vertical wind turbine with magnetic levitation instead of bearings. I would rather see a few of these on prominent hill tops than nuke cooling towers overshadowing Northeast Ohio. Seems better deal than the pinwheels. What do you think?
