    Well, all kidding aside, that really is the point. Encase 6 ounces of delicate electronics in enough metal and rubber, and it'll survive desert conditions, being run over by a truck, and more. Sure it's ugly, but I doubt we're trying to win battles by impressing the enemy with our flashy new toys.

    As for Windows, I think it's mostly due to the limitations of the Palm OS vs. those of Pocket PC. While the Palm does just what I need it to do, and it's fairly reliable with all the crap I throw onto it, Windows becomes much more stable when the user can't muck with it. I doubt that they're letting soldiers install games and such on the CDA. With enough control, even Windows can be stable.

    actually... i'll see if i can dig up the article... but- there is a small blurb in wired last month or the month before about a rugged laptop that was being used by someone in field artillery i believe that saved his life. while on the move, the laptop was stowed in a backpack... the unit came under fire and the laptop took a direct hit from a 7.62... the bullet was stopped by the protective casing on the lcd screen, saving the soldier's life... the best part- the data was recovered! the rest of the case didn't look so hot though...

    call me a girly man all you want for wanting rugged computers... i'll be the living girly man with all his body parts free from bullet holes...

    the picture in wired was cooler... it was of the laptop sitting with the screen open almost ready to be used with the bullet still impaled in the screen and the keyboard mashed up from the little shrapnel there was
