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.

I agree, with one exception: NeXT wasn't really a great company. They had some interesting ideas and technology, but could barely shed their start-up skin.

It was a rather small company. If it hadn't been for Steve Jobs and his return to Apple I suspect most people would never have known about it.
