Maybe most of you are actually working for companies, and so don't really
care about the toll in terms of human costs ? I mean, sure, hire a new

really have ways to hire new people. And a new $2000 machine means less
network cards or gfx cards to play with and port drivers to.
Please don't make strawmen. As my previous message made clear, the
figure of $2000 is bogus, $400 is sufficient, and that *included* a
17" monitor and the license fee for XP.
