Reason #5: It's a large market and compatability is handy for many reasons.
You don't have to like it but if you have a PC even a slow one it can be
handy. It doesn't mean you must pitch over to microsoftism either as there
are enough non- M$ tools that seem to work ok on the base winders.

As to buying a PC... why? People are giving away P166s and thats enough
to do most anything if a decent disk is installed. I figure if I spend more
the price of a new modest sized disk I've overpaid for my PCs. Of course I
don't do the games or heavy graphics that want cpu up the wazzoo or other
