You weren't thinking period? :p

Anyway, I agree with you on this one. This is not going to open for a lot of computer providers like we saw in the 80'es.

However, it will open for a bit more competition, but it's too early to say whether this will benefit small companies or individuals or the major companies. Hardware is actually quite expensive in quantities below 10.000 or higher (depends on the item).
