People take this guy seriously?


I really find it hard to believe that people actually take Chris Pirillo as a voice on technology. After seeing about 10 minutes of him on a TechTV show while in Murfreesboro last year, I swore off the network forever. Now he’s harping this Lindows Laptop — a device I have mixed feeling about on my most generous day. It looks terribly under-powered, and the lack of a CD-ROM drive is a killer. The price looks decent, though, but Lindows can’t be much (and has a quirky license) — further, for just a couple hundred bucks more, you can get a more fully equiped laptop from a major vendor (Dell, Compaq, etc.).

I dunno, color me a skeptic, but if Pirillo is pimping it, I probably don’t want it anyway.
