Who can feel sorry for...
... consumers who knowingly buy into Microsoft's monopoly.
I agree, I would put up with audio commercials. How about this, the commercials could be occasional and genome based ensuring a perfectly targeted audience. Holly crap this is an immense idea. I JUST SAVED PANDORA!
I never sympathize with 1.0.0 adopters. yuz takes yer chances...
This means a designated set of pre-tested hardware components and specifications set by MS. Look for shiny holographic "Microsoft Approved" stickers on your future HPs and Dells and expect the price forentry level machines to reflect the (cough cough) improvement.
What must really scare ballmer is that apple switchers will find little reason to come back to windows and they can run their newly purchased macs for 6 to 10 years before possibly feeling the need to replace them. That's a lot of lost revenue to microsoft - especially when they discover that free Open Office (OO) does a heck of a job replacing Microsoft Office for the mac.
"Eee PC 900..." "Tech heaven..." hahaha Oh make it stop... my sides ache from laughing.
And I should buy this...
...over an iPod Nano for what reason?
Just download Open Office, it's free works extremely well and is fully compatible.
No, it is 113MB
Not sure which update people are getting that are so huge. I just dl'd update 2008-003 (intel) 1.0 and it is 113MB. I still have the update window open because I haven't restarted.
21% in the U.S. consumer market.
"According to IDC, Apple’s worldwide market share grew from 2.4% in 2006 to 2.9% in 2007. (See chart below.) Munster is conservatively modeling global market share to remain flat this year, but he notes that enterprise sales account for 70% of the worldwide market, a segment Apple is not aggressively targeting. In the consumer market, where Apple does compete, he estimates the Mac’s share is now 10% worldwide and an impressive 21% in the U.S."
