PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So, we have the iPad out and about for a while now, doing its thing, most likely selling well. Of course, others want a piece of that pie as well, so we see tablets pop up all over the place, most of which are either ultra-low budget junk or vapourware (how that's Adam coming along, Notion Ink?). Earlier this year, Steve Ballmer proudly held up HP's Windows 7-powered Slate - but then, HP bought Palm, canned the Slate, promised a webOS tablet, and then resurrected the Slate as an enterprise product. Now we have a video of the Windows 7-powered Slate. Let's compare it to Samsung's detailed overview of its Galaxy Tab, and see ever so clearly why HP canned the darn thing in the first place.

Strange how it was Windows 7 that has made me go the other way. It just kept getting in my way where XP or Server 2003 just didn't. Those builtin group policies that you can't change were the last straw (Well you might but I couldn't be bothered by then to find out how) so I gave it up as a bad job. IMHO, Win 7 is even more 'Broken by Design' than previous versions.

So we've ditch Windows (Apart from one Server 2003 system for support) in my small business. We are a total Linux/Unix/OSX shop now and boy do I feel better for it and not just in the wallet.
Then MS has gone and changd the MSDN licensing as well. I really feel sorry for you MS only guys.

Who said I'm MS only? Server side I'm all unix all the time. My phone runs Linux. And I've worked with a couple of embedded projects which where Linux. Basically Linux is great for everything except the desktop.
