Individual as in discrete not as in people.  Read Pedro's perspective,
politically different from yours but none the less legitimate. To me, the
over-riding consideration is to get the widest take up of the ofd standard.
Any of the rest, even if important, is less important. I don't like Apple,
but I have to admit that they got more desktop machines running non-windows
OSs than all the Linux distros combined. That should tell us something.
