I live in the Philippines. More than 80 % of the population cannot
afford either a windows pc or a mac. Now how many millions is that?
Only systems with open source software can make a sustainable business
out of that. Unless MS allows wholesale piracy. I think MS allows it
because at least it will keep keep linux out of home pcs. Now what

usablility of a mac at very low cost and build a sustainable business
out of that? At margins that will give BG a nightmare? Sorry for being
