links for 2009-9-21: Dell buys Perot; Saving PCs

  • Dell to buy Perot Systems for $3.9 billion - Dell needed something other than low margin and susceptible to downturn PC sales, Perot is strong in Healthcare and Government, hmmm, those are growing.
  • How to save the PC: A petition to Microsoft and Apple - Partitioning is a good idea, but introduces having to get partition sizes right.  And on Windows, a separate partition for apps doesn't really work given how apps have to install things in the registry too.  Another solution, and one I hope you are all doing, is just to have regular backups you can restore from.
