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.

NeXT [...] 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.

I think most people don't know about NeXT, anyway - only ~geeks do.

But there's one thing for which we would remember it even without the return of Steve Jobs to Apple: WWW started on a NeXT machine.
