But what are those questions and to whom are they questions?

IM there is a vast computer audience now, getting larger all the time. Created in large part by the consortium of M$ and hardware manufacturers who gain by creating an image that a computer is a machine that runs windows. Universities are created by teaching students how to manipulate windows. Just watch the TV ads here in Mexico.

None of that population knows or cares about the "more fundamental questions".

This list is used by people who don't buy that paradigm: computers are not automatically M$ software platforms. But the "more fundamental questions"?
