The winners of the Next-Gen Windows PC Design Competition have been announced. This was a risky idea I had back when I worked on Vista planning. While I’m not longer associated with its development, I’m excited to see the team do a great job carrying through on this competition and the winning design, “Bookshelf” was personally my favorite as well. I understand it was so successful it may become an annual event.
There’s a ton of good talent and good ideas out there. I just wish the economics of the PC industry were such that more manufacturers had premium brands that looked premium as well as the innards (hello, Dell XPS?)
