Speaking of the Big Monopoly, as I was in the previous rant, according to a post on Slashdot (by way of the BM Watch site), when the next version of Windows makes it’s appearance sometime in 2006, the box will recommend a computer with a CPU running at 4-6 GHz, at least 2 GB of RAM, up to a terabyte of hard drive space, and a graphics card that’s three times faster than those available today. The processor and memory I can believe, but a terabyte of storage? I guess that’s to accomodate the expanding number of worms, viruses, adware and spyware fighting for space on PCs.
