Thiebalt... What anattitude: "Do we care about them"...
I to, like Joe Zeff, have assembled my dektops from bits

I was willing to shell out. I think there must be thousands
of nerds like us out there.

This is a first step of building a tyrannical system....
After the first step, the screws get tightened even further...step by step.
Always try to find who stand to make bug bucks from initiatives like these.
It's all about control and through control, charge fees and get filthy

Um, I think you're missing the point guys. I, too, assemble all my personal machines myself, and I find this not being a problem for me as I use Linux. Since we're on a Fedora mailing list, I kind of assumed we all were.

However, I admit I should have formulated this very differently, especially since my next paragraph is about realizing this also affects hypervisors.

And I apologize to the people who dual-boot whom I have unintentionally ignored. I did dual-boot for a long time too by the way (ever tried to make Microsoft's LDM friends with grub1?).
