Oh, definitely. A $5-per-trick crack whore is also cheaper than a
$1500-per-night rental. I guess I hadn't gotten the idea that "cheap"
was the ONLY concern...of course it can be done with PCs, but who needs
the headaches? I'm willing to pay a bit more to avoid getting
headaches. It's not like real computers are THAT expensive. Let's not
be silly, here.
And since when did this list become a PC advocacy forum? I thought
people here knew better. Apparently that is changing.
