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.

IDC begs to differ, claiming the PC market will grow a majestic 20 percent this year. I've got to believe a lot of this has to do with Windows 7, which is far better in my opinion than XP, thought not without its foibles.

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.

Do you experience any Win 7 weirdness? Is your shop finally buying new machines? Report your findings to [email protected]
