i agreed with the whole speech.

it basically says - both corporations are putting too much emphasis on lock in so the only difference becomes price.

if and when google - brings out a branded ubuntu or other - with chrome kiosk UI - ...free ... with no anti-consumer anything - both apple and ms - will have to re-think all their activation, big media limitations etc...

wouldnt it be great - if one of said companies - did it first - to get the momentum (its inevitable anyway)

windows - without walls.   WOW!


edit: even if google doesnt - someone will - like GOS and its minions.  Just picture OEMs - you mean i just load this for free?
So apple and ms will adjust...  all im saying is - ADJUST first!

*rip all the crap out = trust = high road = profit  Tongue Out
Now you're just picking what you believe to be the lesser of three evils.

Is there anything more 'anti-consumer' than hording other people's data and using it to track them across the internet? Is there anything more 'anti-consumer' than reading emails and keeping them for all time, even after the original owner has deleted them?
