I won't do that.  Fueling this debate is unnecessary.  Now entering Windows 
is something different.  OTOH that'd certainly be lawyer fodder and I'd 
possibly lose the Google account (not that I do much with it anyway.)

I was thinking about trying to address people who are looking into buy a new 
computer.  One of the goals of advertising is to make people aware of a name 
that didn't know it before, after all.
