Why aren't all the nerds and small businesses out there a market? I'm no
marketing expert or anything, but it would seem that there is some kind of
market out there that isn't being catered to. I may be a masochist, but I
refuse to have to pay Apples prices for their hardware. They just seem insane
to me. If they ever decided to sell OS X for non-Apple hardware I might use it.
And just for the record I've been using FreeBSD as an exclusive home desktop
At work now so however Outlook mangles this is my fault :)
Just because it can been done, does not mean it should be done.
