More wish list.
Haven't got around to look at the package yet (just found it 5 minutes ago),
but how about beeing able to synchronize with a PDA like Palm Pilot ??
Drivers & Microsoft
To the first two comments, I would like to say the following:
Read the article. Tha article didn't say that the hardware vendors didn't support in-house drivers.
As far as I know, many hardware vendors don't support for example Linux drivers in-house. The article stated that one hardware vendor didn't release hardware specific information that will enable others to write drivers for their cards.
I totally aggree that those vendors should be boycotted.
About Microsoft, I believe they have done some good.
With every release of their products, computers require more and more system resources (hard drives, memory, CPU and so on). Because of this, we now have the big cheap harddrives, cheap memory and fast(?) computers. Without Microsoft, we would probably only be on the 486 era by now. We wouldn't need more CPU power and storage capacity.
