    It proves they're scrambling for a solution!! Imagine a whole room full of fat, cigar smoking, good ol' boys racking their brains for a solution. This was the best they could do??

    Sounds like the Bush/Cheney administration!!

    The biggest problem with it is

    no support for PC-to-PC home networking, sharing printers across a network, and limited to running three programs concurrently
    If I can't connect to a PC at my house then I am guessing that there is no tcp stack and or NIC so it's nothing but a stand alone machine. No e-mail no surfing the web (for porn). What else is a computer used for?

    I would imagine its able to get on the net, just no option to enable pc to pc networking.

    Problems arise when you try and run background programs, what would zonealarm, messenger, antivirus etc do to it?

    haha, firewall, and a antivirus, then thats it. you cant have a webpage and a word doc open at the same time. If people want cheap, they g olinux, if they want powerful they go linux, they want a computer they get M$, but they dont know that it can be changed. o ignorant mortals OPEN YOUR EYES!

    i cant believe they are actually doing that. what morons. if they want to compete they should first start by making a more stable system and then lower the price and the full version. holy god i cant believe they think that doing this will actually help in there fight against linux. what idiots, its just so funny lol
