The operating system is turning off users, so HP and others are trying to capitalize on its weakness.
Things in the OS war are about to get interesting
i will be the first to adapt to this new OS as long as it doesnt crash and i dont have to format and and restart it frequently MS is going down sooner or later, its inevitable!!
you just took the words right out of my mouth !!
... I for one will not buy HP, as they're pretty mcuh as bad and greedy as Microsoft is... but the more Operating Systems are out there competing for the topspot, the better it is for the consumer. I just wish every software and hardware developer would also embrace linux OS's.
i have a very good feeling that if HP does create their own OS, many other retailers will too (Sony, Toshiba etc).. and when they do, i doubt that they will reinvent the wheel, ive got a pretty good feeling that they will base it on the Linux kernel and Gnome/KDE/XFCE but they would just change the layout and all.. if they do so, they will gain market share very quick since they will be selling HP OS (which is what i will call it until they release the official name) exclusively on their systems (and as you know HP has a pretty big market share in the pc industry..).. i would be really happy if they base it on linux kernel coz that would be gud for the linux industry (FINALLY GAMES !!!)
it would be nice for the hardware companys to take on other O.S systems in a larger way to cut the hold ms has.its no good when one company dominates the market
Is worth a thousand words.
has the hardware platform across all peripherals, this may have MS sounding a retreat. cowards
lol... new operating system from HP. Considering how much investment MS made into each and every Windows released, it would be interresting what HP would do. Another Linux flavored version, perhaps?
as i said before i wouldn't be surprised if they do use the linux kernel, with gnome/kde/xfce and just change very big chunks (make it easier to use and all).. if they do so its only good for the linux industry!!
Dear lord let's be serious , HP couldnt back then , and still right now cant even write a proper graphical layer for past and current windows , so let alone do a whole OS properly . Dont you remember those silly buggy and ugly 3d houses interface , wich launched atop of windows , and had you go to the living room to launch games ?
Not a good idea. I like Compaq/HP computers but an OS?! NO!
Stick to hardware. LOL!
I hate Microsoft and love hp they use the same parts as every other computer company and give a much cheaper sensible price. Its said how vista had to be forced on everyones new computer and a lot of people had no choice. There should be a joint project between hp,sony,intel,dell to create a new operating system.
they all, are not out to get your money? Do you think those Companies(that we all like to hate) all started off engaging in the type of practices we see today? In a capitalistic society, in order for you to survive, you must step on toes. How you think Walmart got so huge? Eventually companies get lazy while being on top and become stagnant, it's all a cycle. I always welcome competition, but don't think every company is not out to get your money, at any cost. Hey MS is by no means perfect, maybe they will get some serious comp with this one. Isn't google working on an OS as well?
