Hardware, Embedded Systems Gartner has its figures for PC sales. Worldwide, Asus and Lenovo seeing lots of growth, Dell and HP losing lots of sales, Apple doesn't register in the top 5. Overall, the market remained flat. If you take a narrow view of the world and only focus on the US, things look different. In the US, everybody loses, and only Apple sees minor growth. All this excludes tablet sales, but considering people are hammering on and on and on about how it's a post-PC device, I think it makes sense to exclude it. You can't have your cake, and eat it too. Then again, who cares.

Like they also do with WLAN and Bluetooth managers/drivers, even though Windows supports them out of the box since XP days?

And battery, and sound card, and video card, and ... Heck, I've even seen systems where the OEM switched all the Media Player and Photo Viewer file associations over to some bundled crapware.

The problem with the OEMs is that they think they can compete based on what they can list on the sticker. All the intangibles get neglected -- and yet these often have a greater effect on the usability of the system than the raw specs.
