   I have several problems with it:

   - If the best thing they can do with their computers is decorate 
them, there's
     something very wrong.

   - Don't these people have better ways to spend their time and money?

   - The notion of being "unique" by doing what everyone else in their 
crowd does is
     pretty silly.

   - Computers are tools, not toys.

   Though, personally, I'd never do this because I'm not eight years old.
