Someone once told me "it's a Windows world". Funny...I live and
breathe computers all day and all night long, and I don't use it.
It's all a matter of perspective...if all you use are x86 boxes, it's
easy to think that's all there is in the computing world. I don't
think anyone in this forum, for example, is enough of a "sheep" to
think the Internet runs on a bunch of PCs.
