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.

Non Microsoft PCs becoming more mainstream

It is becoming easier and easier to get a personal computer from a major manufacturer running something other than Windows. Of course, there is always a Mac which has been and continues to be a very good option for many, but it is major traditional PC manufacturers offering models with Linux that may be the sign that Windows foothold on the "PC" may be weakening.

Dell announced offerings some time ago, but recently announced new laptops that will be running Ubuntu giving a nice selection of machines to choose from, desktop or laptop.

IBM has also announced "Microsoft-free desktops".

Choice is good!
