How we tested

To really make sure that we could see what this monitor could do I used the following hardware:

Conroe Core2Duo E6600 @ 3.3Ghz
DFI ICFX3200
2GB Mushkin HP2 6400
MSI 8800GTX
Pioneer BDR101A - Blu-Ray Player
Pioneer DVR111BK - DVD writer

Xbox 360 via VGA Output
Xbox 360 HD-DVD Player

DisplayMate

I used the DisplayMate professional monitor testing application to put it through it's paces as well as various other tests:

Viewing angle

Watching a HD format movie from various viewing angles to see how good the screen really is.

Gaming

I played through part of F.E.A.R. Counter Strike Source and Oblivion on the PC to see how the monitor lived up to gaming. I also had a quick game on Gears of War and Viva Pinata on the Xbox 360.

High-Def film Viewing

Using both the Pioneer BDR101A Blu-Ray player and the Xbox 360 HD-DVD player we took a look at high definition movies - S.W.A.T. on Blu-Ray and MI II on HD DVD.

General Browsing and use

I had a good browse of OC3D whilst performing some normal office tasks using Office 2007 beta.

It appears that all is not well with the inheritor of the intellectual property for the Unix operating system. What implications, if any, will this have on Open Source/Linux/Unix? Feel free to air your comments below...

Hopefully they won't dissapear, I thought Bill Gates gave them some money to take linux to court about stuff a while ago (or was that sun?)

Guess they've used that up tho and it seems most people are opting for free or open source linux/unix systems which I guess is not helping them that much.
