OK, I'll take your consumer point... I don't really agree about 95 sucking, once they got over the birth pangs, and I'd argue that 3.1 and 3.11 both didn't suck giving you four consumer "not sucks" in a row, but I see where you're coming from.
You can't compare XP to ME like that. The fair comparison of NT Kernel based OSes breaks the every-other-OS-sucks pattern.
NT (Good) -> 2000 (Good) -> XP (Good) -> Vista (Sucks) -> Win7 (Good) -> Win8 (Sucks).
Exactly so. I think my favorite keyboard was on my T23. The T30 was weak, but the right layout at least. T40/T42/T43 were better. I still use my T60 daily. I've replaced the keyboard a few times, but that's just because of the quanitity of use I've put it through.
I could probably get over the chicklet (so-called island) style keys, but the crippled six-row layout is too much.
Of course, I'm still pining for 4:3 displays...

Got to agree with you there.
A tablet does not necessarily equal a pocketable computer.
I've tried using various laptops rotated 90 degrees for playing sheet music, but they don't exactly sit well on the stand. Admittedly, it's a special case, but there are lots of places where having a 1:1 replacement for a sheet of paper would come in handy.
I'd like to see a decent tablet with around a 14" screen. Something that would make reviewing documentation (or sheet music) intended for Letter/A4 sized printouts possible without shrinking it to fit a diminutive screen.
I believe he was in at least two of the "Santa Clause" movies.
Don't forget a weapons locker in the back. The accuracy of the weapons doesn't matter - just spray and pray and watch as other vehicles flip over and explode.
