   Because for some of us it's not a religious question, and neither
Intel nor MS are Satan. Even Microsoft is only a problem when they
occupy production hardware.

   MS will abandon I enough people move off MS computers, *and* enough
people buy XBoxes, production computing that much faster. If you look

demise of Windows by buying the XBox.
