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 
since 1999.  

At work now so however Outlook mangles this is my fault :)
