Yeah.  There are no CF developers in Linux.  There are no
software purchasers using Linux.  There are no IT people
in support using Linux.  There's no such thing as a user
who's machine is locked down to prevent upgrades. There
are no *nix-on-the-desktop Fortune 500 companies.
Only blind people are affected by usability mistakes.

Got anything constructive to add, Erik?  If it's just
