I'll just point out how naieve it is to believe that a newlywed
can make a major purchase decision for a toy that will only
benefit one partner, and do so through the auspice of having
him spend time with it instead of her, and put him in a foul
mood, swearing at the little box, while learning a new assembly
language for a processor Intel is about to End-Of-Life...
PS: Peter seems to have done the work anyway, so no matter how
serious you were, the objection on behalf of the Alpha is
not itself an objection any longer...
PPS: Amazing, how much of the grunt work is shouldered by the
married Australians arouns here...
