If this does come about, then I buy the fastest dual-Hammer PCs
I can find.  This is presuming that, in their infancy, even if
the Hammers do have DRM hooks, DRM can be disabled at the OS level
by Linux.

By then, if I can't be satisfied by home PCs that have 2 ~3GHz
dual-Hammers, each w/ +1GB RAM and a TB or more of disk space 
(320GB Serial ATA HDDs will be shipping by then), then shame on
