Some of us actualy enjoy learning about new technology and playing
with new things.  Its not always work to us.  Sure there is a thin
line but being productive 100% of your life isn't that much fun.  And
honestly those that use Linux on Apple hardware don't see a difference
between Linux on x86 and Linux on PPC. Except that PPC runs faster.
