Hardware, Embedded Systems "Dell, the personal-computer maker that lost almost a third of its value last year, is in buyout talks with private-equity firms, two people with knowledge of the matter said. The shares surged." So yeah, like I said - no wonder Microsoft has entered the hardware business. The PC OEM era is over.

Bonus trivia:

What does "atari" mean?


touché! ;)

I mention Atari in response to Thom: "People should really stop bringing that up. Apple WAS dead." - yes, for most people Apple was on exactly same path as Atari, Commodore, IBM (in PC sector), NeXT, SUN, SGi... and all other GREAT companies... and before that, it was truly amazing time until...

...they all went down thanks to Microsoft (and sheep-like users)!

but Apple/Steve Jobs prove that MIRACLES are possible ;)
- return of Apple to mainstream computing AND beginning of Microsoft downfall today is biggest thing ever happened in computer world for last three decades ;)

...and I am very happy that WORLD finally recognized RIGHT path!


for end, let me quote Douglas Adams which beautifully illustrate 80s and 90s:

"The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he, by peddling second rate technology, led them into it in the first place, and continues to do so today."
