> You take 100 employs making 20/hr sitting and doing nothing for 2 - 3 hours and you've bought yourself the cost of the PC's.
Only if you buy PCs for $40-60 per. What probably happened is the owner's terminal was connected to the failed switch, and then someone had a really bad day.
In the US at least it wouldn't be a warrant or a police action. You would just file suit against the chip maker, the vet, and the guy who has your dog as John Doe. During discovery the records would be subpoenaed and John Doe would be named in the suit.
It's the same way you go after an unknown person on the Internet. File suit, name the ISP and the anonymous offender, subpoena the offender's name.

They already release a Mac mini with this OS. It is called OS X. They also release laptops, desktops, and servers with this OS. I would think that readers of a geek web site would know that. The difference is primarily in the UI later.
Multitasking is not primarily in the UI. Platform lockdown via the app store is not primarily in the ui. I would think that readers of a geek web site would know that.
I can totally see Apple releasing a new mac mini with this OS because *it just works*. Then putting a premium on future machines with the OSX variant.
Almost right. They'll release a mac mini with this OS at a *discount* to the current mini. A desktop version of the iPad...a "home browsing appliance" or some such thing.
All great ideas are controversial, or have been at one time.
