What's Michael Dell running now? Windows 98? DOS?

A sharp-eyed-n-eared audience member of ZDNet -- Cameron Dorey -- spotted News.com's Tom Krazit doing an interview of Dell chairman Michael Dell and asking him what computer he uses at home.  Except for the memory, Dell apparently has a pretty tricked out system.  It's a two-socket system, each socket capable of handling one of Intel's Core Duo "Woodcrest" processors (for a total of four cores).  He's got two monitors connected to the system and a fiber-based Internet connection to his house.  But for memory, Dell says the Dell Precision 690 "supports 64 MB of memory but I've only got 32 in there."

32 MBs of memory?

Asked Cameron via e-mail, "Is he using Win95, or has he been able to upgrade to Win98?"

Good catch Cam.  Or maybe Dell knows something we dont!
