Easy. The operating system software is vastly superior to anything that Microsoft will ever trouble itself to produce.

It's funny you should mention Dell. Monday 9/11/2006 made we really happy thanks to a substantial short position that I had bolstered with some puts that were part of a long strangle. I had dumped the calls at about even money the week before, the puts were a triple on Monday. I also closed the short at a profit and am watching for another entry point on the short side as I expect Dell's share price to decline further in the coming months.

I've never been all that good at finding stocks at the beginning of a major growth surge. However, over the years I have been pretty good at finding short candidates and knowing when to get out of troubled stocks. Dell was on my hit list and still is. I've never much cared for their hardware either, but that's another story.

Best of luck in your endeavors, sorry I was so long in replying, I hadn't been by SI in a while.
