Dell,

It's time for you all to return to your old PDAs.. and make some smartphones! Ones that follow your edict here.

Dell, from the computer owner's perspective, does some negative things as well. 

Did you know that if you buy a Dell computer, you can't sell it without Dell's permission?  If Dell finds out you sold your computer, they will blacklist you, and not sell you any more new computers!  I know this from personal experience (I have been blacklisted for many years). 

Much of Dell's hardware is non-standard, so that if you need to replace a major component, such as a motherboard, for example, you have to buy it from Dell because a standard board won't fit the case.  Nice, Dell, way to piss people off!

I must agree with you, the inner workings and capabilities of today's workstations have improved exponentially since I began using them for design work in 1999.
