    It is comparable in the only sense in which I used a comparison. More 
people want a computer with Windows preinstalled than want it any other way. 
Similarly, more people want a car with standard seats preinstalled than want 
it any other way.

    Who said anything about 'specially expensive'? Are you pretending I said 
that just so you can refute it?

    It kind of reminds me of a scene from Futurama, which went roughly like 

    Leela: We need to get some money.

    Fry: Well how are we going to do that? A daring daylight robbery of Fort 
Knox on elephant back? That's the dumbest idea I ever heard!
