@ Mike Hanna

Vista - Very Integrated but Slow, Troublesome Atrocity?

I weren't none too fond of ME, I stayed with NT until my wife moaned that it wouldn't see her MP3 player (USB).

Expect the next incarnarnation to be i-something, everybody else is doing it.

Hilarious!

I feel sorry for that girl and agree she may not have a very nice life but if I had a taser, I'd taser in the morning, I'd taser in the evening............

Asus CEO signals Q1 2010 smartbook launch

Asus DS?

A DS for men, no candy pink DS's here, I want a Carl Zeiss 50 MP camera, Bang & Olafsson audio & an HD screen, goddammit. Seriously though, I'm sick, diddly, sick, sick of the current refererence design, something different would be nice, just so long as it has enough poke to surf the web properly.

Tux, cos we know that's what netbook makers always had in mind.

@ watts

<ot>

Actually, I think the guy in the shop was right. The "best" way to rate speakers is watts in RMS (root mean square) this is the figure you'll get from a proper audio company. The silly ones that retailler was quoting would have been MPO or PMPO (Music Power Output or Peak Music Power Output) which are fantasy football figures and the only way you'll get 1000 watts out of a device the size of a deck of cards.

Paris, because she'd never mislead a potential pc customer.

Dell: Linux v Windows netbook returns a 'non-issue'

(L)users

I have a friends daughters pink AA1 - it comes with Linpus, which to a non-techie person should be fine.

She hasn't used it at all because it isn't XP so I have been asked to install XP on it. It is a SSD version so runs horribly with XP, so have now been asked to put Linpus back on, presumably so it can be RMA'd.

I have switched a few people on to Linux but the majority just want "what they know" and that is a difficult thing to change. With netbooks running Linux there is some familiarity out there but we will have to keep chiping away.

I'm a fanboy but understand that for most it is second nature to double click an app to install it (although I like OSX's drag and drop installation) or to plug in a webcam and be prompted for a driver disk and for that disk just to work. They're never going to cope with dmesg, make, modprobe etc. although things are sooo much better than years ago when you'd just have to make do without, perhaps it's the move to broadband so Linux isn't make or break on not supporting a modem.

Paris, 'cos she has a penguin fetish.

HP sued by own sales reps

Exsqueeze me...

....but I find it hard to feel sorry for these guys, at least they still have jobs and must have been getting paid roughly what they were expecting otherwise this would have been identified earlier.

Tux, because OSS would sort this (Fanboi alert).
