When you mix your metaphors, you get wet

From a reminder this morning that the PC is going to be 25 soon...
"The PC is evolving at the speed of knots and Lenovo is running with it". Does that mean they walk on water?

It's nice that Lenovo still has some of the team who taught the elephant to dance when they developed the PC, including David Bradley, who wrote the interface code. His description of the project sounds much more like agile and extreme programming than you might epect. "For a month, we met every morning to hash out what it was this machine had to do and then in the afternoons worked on the morning's decisions."
