Speculation about the Mac Mini

Cringely has a great column with his speculations about the Mac Mini. It's more than a little interesting. If he's right, Billg is going to be really, really pissed.

I've been gradually saying goodbye to the MS prodcuts on my machine. Mozilla, Mozilla, Mozilla. Oh, and sometimes, Opera. Right now, I'm eyeing Open Office - apparently you can save Open Office docs as Word docs, assuaging my concerns about work related compatibility. Billg is probably going to be pissed about what's going on with software side too.

I'm pretty tired of the bloated, stability-challenged, memory hogging, secure as a sieve products coming out of Redmond - plus, they're expensive. I'm not quite ready to ditch Windows or to be the subject of a switch ad, but I am eyeing other OS packages to see what suits the nerdy yet not quiet ready to edit my *.ini files end user.

Is the age of Microsoft over?
