To all of the naysayers...

If you don't like Element Computers and Ion Linux... Don't buy the thing.


Too bad, you don't like their business plan, and their current level of exposure.

It's their money, their business, their risk.

If they screw up with this, they'll go under.

If they don't, they'll make a good product people will want to buy.

Why won't you just wait and see which one comes true, instead of slamming the new guy who wants to try his hand at making a living in the Computer Marketplace?

Where do you think the next Microsoft is going to come from, other than some entrepreneurs who have an idea and try it out in the Marketplace?
