A Reversal Of Fortune In PCs

Filed under
Hardware

Three computer makers that were considered has-beens not too long ago are getting a second wind.

Apple Computer has found new life, thanks to its booming iPod digital music player business.

Hewlett-Packard is enjoying a resurgence under new Chief Executive Mark Hurd.

And thin-client computer maker Neoware Systems is seeing heightened interest in its systems because of their security and cost-saving benefits.

Meanwhile, long-time leader Dell has been in the doghouse on Wall Street. Its stock has taken a tumble since the direct seller of computer gear missed sales expectations in the August quarter.

The shake-up might seem like a Bizzaro World twist, but Apple, HP and Neoware have earned their place atop the stock rankings, analysts say. The firms have succeeded by finding profitable niches, honing operations and staying fresh.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
