PCs are Dead. Not!

Pundit doofuses love to predict the demise of the PC. And of course they write these lame opinions from, you guessed it, a PC.

I'm on my second Windows 7 machine and some funky stuff keeps going on, nothing that will stop me from working (unfortunately), more like Mickey Mouse behavior I can work around.
