I'm just saying that a bigger cut of the platform market is in our interest, for the single reason that more mind share will make some things easier.

I agree whole hartedly that the cost can be too high though...

More mindshare always makes things easier ;) If we had it, we wouldn't have any of the issues you speak of. Linux is growing, however, and soon manufacturers and users will have to face the music and expand to *our* platform if they wish to increase their revenue and user base.
