And It Came To Pass, Small Cheap Computers Rule The World

“Rumour loving Digitimes reports that several major vendors, including Lenovo, HP, Toshiba, Acer and Asus will launch Intel based convertibles sometime in the third quarter. Lenovo will lead the way and it will introduce its first Android based notebook a bit earlier, in May. “

Chuckle. You know the end of monopoly is near when it fragments and one half of Wintel throws the other half, M$, out of the lifeboat. When OEMs and retailers get behind */Linux the party will be at my house. 😉

    George Wilson Ubuntu is even off to a better start than Microsoft has been on mobile devices.

    The battle is going to get interesting.

    George Wilson this is the problem. Small and cheep did sell I have pointed to the numbers many times.

    Eeepc and their Linux is what leads to Android in Mobile phones and Tablets. Where Android leads who knows.

    No Windows XP model of the small and cheep laptops ever sold out of all produced inventory in under 12 months.

    –ABI Research believes that 2012 will see the tipping-point at which netbooks running Linux-based and mobile operating systems outnumber those running Windows XP.–

    George Wilson read it again. Linux-based. This is not GNU/Linux. This includes Chromebook devices(linux based netbook/notebook), Android(Linux based mobile OS and tablet OS). ABI Research had not factored in Tablets.

    George Wilson what was said 4 years ago for 2012 is coming true in 2013. That is a fairly good prediction only 1 year out.

    This is the problem George Wilson OEM saw the sales this is why they were receptive to Google Android and Chromebooks.

    George Wilson do I have to pull in the market sales stats.

    Mr. Pogson declared the end of monopoly — you know, the “monopoly” which isn’t a monopoly, except in Mr. Pogson’s head — four years ago on this blog. Then his fad of the day were netbooks — yes, those cheap computers which wouldn’t sell until OEMs slapped Windows XP on them. Mr. Pogson deemed them essential for Linux’s victory.

    You can see clearly here how one of the greatest minds of our time works. It’s like with the monkey: give Mr. Pogson enough time and he’ll produce a prophecy which actually will come true. Shakespeare will be impossible for him, though.
