This won't happen until the alternative gives the people what they like
about a Windows PC, and for the same price.

The average joe doesn't give a damn about the rest of the picture,
because they wouldn't understand the explanation in the first place.

The only way to win them over is to show them an alternative in terms
they can understand.  They view computers as a tool and don't look under
the hood.

I think Apple is currently the only company doing that.

There aren't enough "Sun U60s" to supply the market, and most people
would feel that was a downgrade.
