A comment from someone at 

	"The last 20 years of the PC have been *boring*.

	Just about the stupidest statement I've ever read. The last 20
	years includes the entire lifespan of the Macintosh, the entire
	history of desktop publishing, the web, home video editing
	and DVD burning, etc. What kind of an idiot considers these
	things boring?"

It really makes sense to start fresh, with kids who are not yet 
entangled in prejudices what computers are all about.
