PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Over at Daringfireball this past weekend, John Gruber put words to what many people are thinking about after Google's rush of Android announcements and not-subtle Apple-bashing at this week's I/O conference: "all-out war." I agree with Gruber that a good old-fashioned bitter rivalry could be a great thing for the computing world, and for smartphone/handheld fans in particular.

Windows obsolete? I think you guys are getting your hateful dreams a bit too far.

Windows is very much the primary desktop OS, and no, various open source desktop do not cut it.

Neither does OSX. Should I point out the abysmal 3D performance?

Windows 7 is actually mostly pleasant to use and works rather well - and it's fast including gaming (I use all main OSes, as many do here i suppose)
I don't need to point out how many businesses also rely on it and do not wanna switch their forests of active directories.

It's not going away anytime soon. And certainly not by 2011..
