The thing I like most about VLC is that it reads/plays DVD's fast. I have WinDVD and Interactual Player and both of them take forever to read my DVD drive. In VLC, I just load the drive name and I'm watching a movie like that.
Well, it reminds me of what Microsoft used to do. They would blackmail computer manufacturers into bundling IE. Basically they say, "Use IE or no Windows OS for you!"
That's how they basically crushed Netscape back in the day and they still do it. I can't fault Intel for using underhanded tactics to destroy competition. That's the capitalist way: cheat the system until you get caught. Look like they got caught.
Here's the thing:
12'' are very small for most people. They prefer at least 14''+ and a lot of people like the 17".
Also, 12" have smaller chassis's so you can't put as much "stuff" into them. People on NBF like "stuff."
