And that's exactly what I am pointing out.  I have a tough enough
time in the real world because I'm not running Windows and Windows IE.

Why would I *aggravate* that by running none of:

        Linux on x86

which are arguably the three biggest deployed platforms...?

Maybe those of you that are doing this can afford to not get real work
done from time to time.  I can't.  I suppose if I had a "spare"
machine instead of my "main" machine where I have to get Real Work
Done, I could run exotic operating systems on it.
