Why Windows Is So Expensive

Cuz they are. The Firefox Extension Guru's Blog Discusses the Expense of Windows Vista and Office 2007 in some detail. Now they say Windows 7 will be more expensive than Vista or XP.

But Microsoft keeps attacking Apple about the expense of their stuff. Hmmm. Jealous, maybe?

Anyway, you can get some software somewhat cheaper at Software Supply Group. I don't work for them anymore, but they're all right. I'm busy trying to sell discount medical supplies and hospital equipment.

Windows 7 Will Never Hit the Ultrathin Notebook Sweetspot

Windows 7 Ultrathin notebooks not hitting the sweet spot, according to Mary-Jo Foley.

But of course. And nothing is going to hit the ultrathin notebook sweetspot, or the netbook sweetspot, until Apple comes out with there iPhone-based tablet that'll knock everybody's socks off. Which will happen, soon enough.

PC World says the Apple Tablet is real. Now, we'll finally get an actual netbook market. Sorta like we got an MP3 market when Apple released the iPod, and finally got a touch-screen Internet phone market when Apple released the iPhone.

That's the stone-cold truth. Later, my friends.
