Strangely, they seem to be making a lot of money doing whatever it is that 
they do.  Cringely has his theory, but it seems to be more of an audacious 
sort of smirk than anything actually real.  Gates is a lot more successful 
than Cringely, too.  I think that Cringely is just a whiner.

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 PCs for technophobes go head-to-head ,----[ Quote ] | New Alex laptop takes on Valerie Singleton's | SimplicITy range | | A UK vendor has launched a new specialised | notebook aimed at technophobes and computer | novices, adding to what is rapidly becoming a | mini-sector of ‘idiot-proof’ PCs. | | [...] | | “We are competing with SimplicITy to an | extent, but what you get from us is support,” | Holmes told PCR. “Where SimplicITy has taken | a flavour of Linux and offered you four big | buttons to click, I think it just leaves you | there. What we’re saying is this is a | subscription – you pay by the month so we | will be with you every step of the way.” | | As Holmes suggests, this service comes at a | cost. On top of the £400 price tag for the | 15.4-inch laptop (soon to be upgraded to | 15.6-inch), users must pay a monthly fee of | £9.99, or £24.99 if they want broadband too. `---- http://www.pcr-online.biz/news/33252/PCs-for-technophobes-go-head-to-head Recent: SimplicITy – Linux for everyone! ,----[ Quote ] | SimplicITy is offered in two different | suites (£435.99 & £525.99 respectively), | but what you have to consider is this is for | a complete solution (no pondering over which | version is most suitable). A new user | buying a Windows PC for example is probably | going to be presented with choices to make | that they are relying on the salesperson to | know wh...

[News] GNU/Linux Desktop With Memory Footprint of 18 MB, IdeaCentre with GNU/Linux
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Your way is the right way ,----[ Quote ] | That’s this machine, of course, with a Grub- | to-console boot time of 23 seconds (including | the time it takes to snap the framebuffer into | place), a full-workload memory footprint of | less than 18Mb and taking up around 1Gb of | hard drive space.

I’d thrown out the battery ages ago, and | the machine is almost as old as me, so I had a certain nostalgia using the | DOS/Windows 95 system that was installed on it. | | Nevertheless, I wanted to see if it could be pushed a little further. The | specs of this machine are laughable by today’s standards: 8miB of RAM, a ~75 | or 100mHz CPU (a 486DX2) and a 500miB hard drive.
