PCs and old socks

Gartner fellow, Brian Gammage believes PCs and socks have a lot in common. “I only buy new socks when my old ones have holes and are worn out, This is how we’ll buy PCs,” he says. Since people don’t buy socks on new features, Gammage believes people will buy new PCs their big toe starts protruding from the case.

Unlike socks, which usually ship with one big hole (a documented feature), PCs seem to come with numerous.undocumented holes, which we’re expected to continually patch. So Brian, what operating system does your socks run?

I see this being true for a lot of people, although I try to keep all my old computers running despite the holes in them, even when I buy a new machine I find use for an old one somehow :)
