To throw an odd one in there
The Pixar Image Computer - ok, technically it probably doesn't belong on this list as its not a standalone machine, but damn i wanted one in its day !
Could it be the inspiration for Mr Jobs' later cube fetish?

Carmack did it carmack did it
Took me ages to track down this article from 3 years ago, but the big man has been there done that and is still waiting on the hardware to catch up....
Never a truer word spoken
"Art is art, it is made to be enjoyed.
People that obsess about earnings and money are making Commodities, not Art.
They are Manufacturers, not artists."
Couldn't agree more - and whats more, generally highly derivative manufacturers. Imagine if music fell under the same dubious restrictions as software (via patents) - oh you cant use them three notes together I own the patent on that, there wouldn't have been anything new released this century!
Now (as a fellow manufacturer) if only I could potentially be making money out of one days work for the next 90 years I'd probably be a happy man living as a tax exile too !
Good luck to NCSoft
I'm sure the facts that NCSoft have recently had to lay off a large number of staff worldwide and that their US branch is based in Texas (world capital of backwards affordable luddite judges and juries) had nothing to do with picking on them first. I can see it now . . . Korean you say, ain't they commies. Must be guilty.
Here's hoping the rest of the MMO world get behind NCSoft on this one tho as surely it would be in all their interests to support them, and maybe contribute to the war fund on this one, and teach these nobody patent trolls the SCO lesson.
God.... god !!
Steve Jobs IS god - havent you heard. So apples are copyright him, first prototype appearing sometime on friday afternoon approximately 10,000 years ago (right after creating the pub) !
