  Of course you _can_ find _some_ choice out there.  If not, then
  not even you would be able to argue in favor of Microsoft.  The
  more important question is:  how difficult is it for Mr. & Mrs.
  Anybody to have a choice?  How difficult is it for them to even
  find out that they DO have a choice?  Those of us with some
  technical knowledge, some unsatisfied curiosity, and some
  willingness to try new things will always have some kind of
  choice.  It may come down to writing our own programs though,
  if we do not influence the industry now.
