Editorial I hear often that when something new appears that "competition is good". The primary reasons competition is seen as good, are: it drives down prices; it gives consumers more choice; it pushes technology forward, quicker. Competition is not good because: competition is why consumers have to choose between HD-DVD and BluRay; competition is why DRM exists; and more. In this article, each of the supposed benefits of competition will be looked at in more detail.

Well, as I said, I bought those Gateway systems over 10 years ago and they were expensive, but very well built. I also remember calling Gateway and getting someone on the phone instantly back in the day.

I then did hear that they went to hell, but for home use I have built my own systems after that original purchase with the exception of a couple of SUN servers I have laying around.
