Well apart from the way Mr Jobs treated the workers in Cork who put him where is today I didnt buy an iMac for the same reason I didnt buy a betamax video. Even If the IMac has a future (It probably does actually)It is always going to be a minority interest. You will have only a limited selection of software and the vendors will be able to charge whatever they want for It. At least us PC users do have alternitives albeit limited) to Micro$oft.
Your point is good though Tuars There is room for a reasonably priced and easy to use "Internet appliance" for computerphobes. I think BT in the UK are trying to market a telephone with a small keyboard and screen for this purpose but then again remember minitel ?
