I recently bought a netbook brand new for 130$

 

that uses android operating system 4.0.

 

This was the best purchase I made for the price

 

because I am a cost conscious kind of guy. I go

 

so far as the cost per day for each device I

 

purchase when I user my personal business model.

 

But the bonus I found was not the cheapness of

 

the device and the operating system but the

 

applications. The surprise was this the cost of

 

the applications. I bought a c++ compiler for

 

3$US installed and running in about 10 minutes from

 

there app store C4droid (C/C++ compiler).

 

I am a big Microsoft Visual Studio fan but it cost 700$.

 

Do the math.

 

So if we are taking about the future again I think

 

the big three Microsoft Apple and Intel need a new

 

business model to survive the future. Time determine

 

what will happen in this regard to all these companies

 

in the near term and future.

 

Thx.

I keep myself well versed in Microsoft and Apple products but Windows 8 I chose not to adopt. I'm running Kubuntu on my MiniLap and Gnome Cinnamon GUI on my workstation. This will be my last large computer. I can do everything I need on new MiniLaps and the cost is around 30,000 yen 300 U.S. If I really was a time traveller, I would tell people to forget about Apple and MS. You can't beat free Linux Android. I said as much back in 1992 running Slackware. Only now in 2013, is Linux stable enough for anyone to use -- also thanks to Google. This little Nexus 7 is the future. But don't dismiss this Mini Laptop just yet.

Windows 8 is a temporally screw up. Windows Blue will come out this summer.

 

Windows 8 is on a dead time line so I think I will stay on it till it expires.

 

Windows Blue will change to a subscriber method along with other new windows

 

software like Office so get your stuff before the change over this is a warning.

 

Thanks.

I actually didn't find Windows Eight as annoying as most have described it. Sure the Metro UI was a tad bit annoying, but I had the ability to change the UI on my own back to a classic theme. The performance was slightly improved from 7, but not really anything new. It wasn't bad, in my opinion, but it wasn't good either, just Windows 7 with some pros and cons thrown into the mix; not worth upgrading to if you already have 7.
