This came up the other day upon login from fortune:

Imagine that Cray computer decides to make a personal computer.  It has
a 150 MHz processor, 200 megabytes of RAM, 1500 megabytes of disk
storage, a screen resolution of 4096 x 4096 pixels, relies entirely on
voice recognition for input, fits in your shirt pocket and costs $300.
What's the first question that the computer community asks?

"Is it PC compatible?"

What's funny, I suppose, is that it's actually kind of off.  Amazingly, no
one much cares about windows on a computer that fits in your pocket.
