A strange weakness in all MS Windows versions by [email protected]
It contains no real/decent programming language, unlike ms-dos that did contain QBASIC, and the C64 which also contained BASIC. Something is better than nothing. How will "our" kinds now learn to program ?! It's a bit strange. I would recommend Microsoft to think about what they could add to...

Advise for intel about integrating RAM onto chip. by [email protected]
One more posting though about the "RAM" integration attempt of intel and others onto CPUs/chips. It seems Intel is trying to be "nice" about it and trying to create an "eco" system for other RAM manufacturers to deliver "RAM" chips for integration on top of the Intel's CPUs. This tactic/strategy...
