Axis of Avoidance

The world of politics has an "Axis of Evil." While no computer company is evil in the George Bush sense of the word, there are companies that are consistently bad news. Let me suggest an IT Axis of Avoidance:

  • Microsoft
  • Dell
  • Symantec
  • Sony
  • America OnLine
  • D-Link
The less you have to deal with these companies, the better off you will be.

Hi, Michael,

If Dell is evil, what computer makers do you recommend (and why)?

Thanks,
Alan

Alan: I did not say Dell was evil and did not mean to imply it. Just that you are best off avoiding them. For laptops I like ThinkPads. For desktops, I don't have a recommended company. Wish I did.
