ICSID / Microsoft competition

You know that I finally escaped from the real evil empire (microsoft) a couple of years ago; but it was not easy. I have no regrets, and, in fact, I've never been happier to be free from windows or microsoft and the blue screen of death. Anyway, I found this PC design competition.

It's no joke. The competition is endorsed by ICSID . In their own words:

Start Something Inspired

As Microsoft Windows celebrates its 20th anniversary, Microsoft, IDSA, and ICSID want to envision the future with you in the form of a competition.The challenge is to envision the future of the next-generation of Windows-based PC and share that vision with the community in an open dialogue in The Next-Generation Windows OS PC Design Competition. Open to design teams, students and individuals, entrants will be eligible to win up to $125,000 worth of cash prizes with winners selected in three categories and the unveiling of a "Virtual Showroom" in November 2005.

The Challenge
Rethink the Windows-based PC experience today and the role it plays in people’s lives. Envision how the digital lifestyle—from personal productivity at work or home, to entertainment, mobility, lifestyle and form—all play a part in development. Think big, be bold, and inspiring, but pay attention to sustainable technologies, and ecological and environmental innovation.

good luck
