Doesn't the notion of a time line mean anything to you? In the 20 years since
the period to which I was referring things have changed considerably since the
density of hardware has increased so much. It makes little sense for vendors
to sell things separately and become huge and difficult to handle just to sell
a little more plastic, when they really don't need to be bigger than a cigar

The grandkids have Playstations. Adults might want 'em too, since some of the
games are pretty slick. I don't relate to that, myself, but I know lots of
folks enjoy a game as a form of diversion. I don't think anybody would
mistake one for a computer though it wouldn't surprise me to learn that
somebody somewhere had figured out how to make it run Linux. I just can't
imagine why one would want to.
