    It would be interesting to see if it can support MP3/video etc. They are heavily patented.

    I think Dell has mistaken the number of zealots who left a comment on their page, with the number of people who will actually buy one.


    Interesting point. Executives are known not to be bright once in a while, and I think the one that made this decision was one of them. 50 Linux losers posting on forums equals 50,000 computer sales. Think not Smiley

    Didn't you get the memo? Open source is immune to that silly patent thing.

    How ironic - today I decide that I miss channel9 so much that I'm returning to converse with intelligent people across the globe, and this is the first post I decided to open...oh well Smiley

    Now, how many people are going to buy Dellux machines? Probably not many, considering that MOST of dell's machines will go to the average-joe user who doesn't even know what linux is, let alone care about alternatives to Windows.

    How many hardcore linux users are going to buy a dellux machine? Probably not many, since linux is free anyway, and they've already got enough machine-parts around their mothers basement to build a machine...

    So who exactly is going to buy these dellux machines? My mother won't, I won't, you won't Smiley Viva la Mac'n'Dows!

    Dear colleagues in Redmond - unfortunately our schemes to control the computer industry have been revealed.  Yes, the forces of truth, justice and freedom have defeated our monopolistic tendencies at last and now nothing remains for us but shame and a long lingering and very public death.

    Please be calm... Plan Zeta will run on Linux.

    Curious...does the Plan Zeta API have "z"s in front of all the variables/types/classes? Sort of like "GLfloat" in OpenGL or the abundance of "g"s in front of every single Gnome class/method/function/type. Perplexed

    Uh, correction. Macs are a fashion item not a personal computer.

    That is entirely your opinion.  Please be aware of the fact that a lot of what you say (including such things as "MSFT is evil!" and "Vista sucks!") is an opinion.

    That is plan Delta Zeta.  Those items would have already been distributed to you already if DZ was in effect.

    I thought I remember hearing in the Zeta Drills that you can find an extra chicken and snorkel at the front receptionist in each building if you are lacking of either.

    If you have no luck with that, I believe that, technically, Building 7 is _made of_ chickens and snorkels.

    The thing is Dell will need to try to make their Linux systems seen otherwise only current Linux users will bother to look.

    What about retail outlets? Is Dell gonna bother displaying their Linux systems at Best Buy, Circuit City, Fry's, etc.

    Perhaps Dell is only trying to please the open source crowd? Thats OK if so. But it would be a real disapointment to our neiborhood trolls.
