This machine looks different. That's the key -- I guess.
An average powerpc desktop box doesn't look any different from a midi
or mini sized pc. Same for some alpha boxes. Hence, people often
don't realise that something very different is running inside.
tervola, for example, is sitting in a midi tower and it looks like a
damn regular pc, yet still there's a powerpc inside. If people don't
know the details, they don't notice. And if they already know the
details and differences, they don't have to be shown.
If nothing changes, everything will remain the same. -- Barne's Law
