Hardware 2.0 - Year in review

Summary:The Hardware 2.0 blog has only been going for six months, but this is the time of year for reflection.

The Hardware 2.0 blog has only been going for six months, but this is the time of year for reflection.  With that in mind, here are the top 10 posts for Hardware 2.0 (collated from data available earlier this month):

#10 - Microsoft: 'Software piracy is not a victimless crime'  
#9 - PlayStation 3 doesn't do 1080i
#8 - Get a free copy of Windows Vista and Office 2007
#7 - The printer cartridge scam
#6 - Make XP look like Vista!
#5 - Why hasn't Linux made it mainstream on the desktop?
#4 - Why Linux will never go mainstream on the desktop
#3 - Protect DVD-Video - A slap in the face for PC and Media Center owners
#2 - The world just isn't ready for Linux
#1 - Is Firefox 2.0 a dud?

All these posts generated some really lively discussions.

Some things that I think will be worth keeping an eye on next year include:

  • Whatever Apple brings out!
  • What Microsoft does with the Zune line
  • How Vista and Office 2007 are widely received
  • AMD vs. Intel
  • ATI vs. NVIDIA

See you in 2007!
