This analysis is right on the money.
The XBox is not a PC; the PS3 is.
If you can get a supercomputing Linux workstation with various convergence properties (home entertainment center, video conferencing with the eye toy, home computer....) for so cheap, sales of
PS3 and other cell-based products will set back
a number of very prominent computer manufacturers
and distributors, and reestablish Sony as
the king of computing. Apple is not the only
company in trouble. KDE can absolutely be made
user-friendly so that it competes with Wintel.
