Well, it will most probably be a MS4M - Microsoft For Media - machine
called Gamer's Dream: Fully & automatically connected/integrated into
MSN for downloading, streaming and updating - at 1 $ for the hardware
plus a flat MSN subscription rate of XXX $ per month/year...

Oh, and it won't even boot the OS unless it can log into MSN first. -Dave

Only for the corporate suits, the rest of us will be running Linux on
multi-processor 64/128 bit boxes with solid state storage for fast access
for booting and program storage with massive fast disks for data. PCs will
be tiny but they'll need coolers the size of air conditioners.

Except that by 2010, Mickeysoft will have purchased all the major linux
distro companies. So while you might choose to run linux, you won't be
running anything decent like redhat or suse, for example. Also by 2010, I
imagine Mickeysoft will have convinced congress to pass a law making it
ILLEGAL to purchase any computer or computer component (even minor ones like
video cards) without a Mickeysoft operating system. Mickeysoft will push it
through congress by arguing that it's to eliminate piracy and FIGHT
TERRORISM. They will back up this argument with trillions of soft money.
Welcome to the future. -Dave

Ah, you live in the good old USA under the Digital Millenium Corporaterule
Act, out here we'll be doing our own thing. Digital Rights Management etc
seems to be a wonderful way of guaranteeing locked-down US computers will
stop selling to the rest of the world. The far east and our own industries
can then make all the control free machines we want to run our own choice of
independant open source operating systems. The thriving hacking industry
will ensure we have readily available free copies of any applications and
games we want to run on them paid for by all you poor locked-down yanks.
Two hundred and thirty years later than you we finally have our own online
war of independance. :-)

You are absolutely right, Alan. We should, in particular, not forget
the strive for freedom from the U.S. computer market predominance in
the People's Republic of China (which is regularly reported on in
http://english.people.com.cn/).
Maybe the free GNU Linux will survive there (as Red Linux or Great
Wall Linux)...

Welcome to YOUR future, although our parliament is probably no harder to buy
than your congress they've yet to start the process of handing over control
of the home desktop to the corporations.

Didn't something like this already happen when every Intel PC had to have a
MSDOS license whether installed or not?

One that doesn't have TCPA and actually works without turning the
insides of the box into a furnace.
