I think what motivates buying is compatability over quality.I also think it's the old FUD factor (not Elmer Fudd mind you, but Fear Uncertainty & Doubt). This was a major factor in IBM's dominance in the 70's & 80's for us dinosaurs that remember.I currently have Office '95, Win '98, WinFax professional 9.02. One thing they all have in common is they run under Windows 9.X or NT.You can probably use the same analogy with Intel, although competition is heating up with AMD, CYRIX, Evergreen and some other CPU maufacturers out there.BTW, I'm glad you found your way over here and hope the # of posts increases dramatically since this is the first day of action on this board.
