    Microsoft is planning to enter the hardware business. Will this drive PC makers to Linux? Will this be the final straw in the antitrust lawsuits? Will Microsoft alienate Intel and AMD? All this and more in the continuing MS story.

    The end is beginning.

    I think that this kind of thing is inevitable!

    M$ has too much money and it has to continue to expand or it will die.
    Thats the nature of the beast. Thats why there is Xbox and all the other crummy stuff, M$ does or makes.

    Once they stab their best friend Intel in the back. they will be set out upon the road to their own destruction! Yeah baby!

    Sadly, I think it is more likely that M$ will take a loss on these machines, and give them away for $99.

    This opens up M$ control of the privacy eliminating Palladium architecture on hardware. Millions will buy them based on price alone, and because they think M$ is good.

    Once Palladium becomes a defacto standard, M$ will make their money by selling marketing data of individual users by age, region, gender, etc.

    By this point, you'll likely have to give youe mother's maiden name and ssn to get a passport account (required to use your machine), so M$ can bleed your life savings dry $19.99 at a time.

    They've really gone too far with this Palladium DRM/trusted architecture. The kowtowing to Fritz must stop!

    Finally! Thank god HITORMISS is here!

    Well its finally happened!

    After all the recent talk about banning losers and kicking mental slack jawed halfwits, after all the talk about moderating what people post.

    Here is a truly pathetic child without any redeemable merit who is posting without any intelligence and is incredible offensive.

    I can smell his rotting brain from here!

    I have defended free speak and stated that the moderators should save their power for the only when it is most needed!

    This guys profile screams MORON!

    OMG, folks it looks like we got another GoCyrus. Wow, that only took about 7 months for that to happen. Look son, put down the mouse and keyboard, and go get yourself a few English lessons. You need it. You cannot even correctly spell the name of your counrty! That is not an English problem, you are just, well, special. :p

    If someone made a post like that guy's profile they would be banned. I say ban him for the inappropriate content. Innocent children could look at that profile and how would that reflect on this site :p

    I have filed a report on that m$ lover, I suggest that any/everyone that finds him offensive do the same.

    In stead of just complaining, do something about it. ;) :p :D

    I just reported his arse. Good Idea Alpha. In the meantime let's continue to mock him.
