I’ve been harping for years now that small cheap computers are the way to go. There’s just no need for big boxes except in a few cases like huge computing power, storage or RAM. Look what smartphones can do with a tiny battery. Just about everything can be done with a tiny handful of chips that could be placed anywhere, like inside the monitor or keyboard. “will get so small that it disappears. Weâ€™re reinventing the home theater PC, it tucks behind your TVâ€¦ you just wonâ€™t see it anymore.”
A world where the PC and the OS are hardly noticed by users is a world where competition can thrive and consumers get what they pay for unlike the old days when M$ and “partners” forced everyone who wanted a bicycle to buy a Cadillac. Small cheap computers naturally fit with GNU/Linux because they are easier to sell without M$’s “tax”.
