I can send over some migren if you need a cause :-))) It is a real A
class one! :-)

I don't think so.
> that 80% of home computers run windows ?
That may not be true in the US (Apple has a much higher % there than eg.
in Hungary) but it is really true that games manufacturers can still get
a very big market with MS only SW. Even MS Win9x/ME only.
> that a pre-installed computer *always* comes with windows ?
This might have changed lately but it _was_ true. Places where you can
get it w/o Windows are not well know by the "simple" public. Really. I
live in Finland now. All PC ads have Windows whatever preinstalled. No
choice, only between a Win9x/ME or NT (4/2K/XP will be now). :-((( This
is the country of Linux!

Now that was true in Hungary! Maybe not today, but I doubt that big cos
changed a lot. I said I want it w/o OS they said: no way. MS
_forces_them_ to sell Windoze with every PC. I said then I don't want a
HDD in it. They say OK, then it costs +100USD. I say: so long
suckers... and bought a PC from a "garage company". The ridicul is that
I had highest possible MSDN and I was buying this SMP stuff for
development... I already bought the OS for a lot of money from MS.
Actually _all_ OSs including the traditional Chinese versions... And
now comes: the garage PC needed me to install a new vent into it for the
HDD was too hot... So at least where I am you don't get a PC w/o MS OS.
