Geek News Central is musing over HP’s rumored plan to create an operating system for it’s own machines, open source flavour (to some degree). I haven’t actually installed or even really used much Vista at all, but it sounds like the experience is enough to make one of the worlds largest hardware vendors look elsewhere. Despite people’s general awareness of OSS and the success of Linux, Microsoft’s marketshare on desktop computers is almost entire. But if HP abandons Windows as their part-and-parcel OS solution..? That could be significant!
