Not stupid at all, of course. I also believe that this *is* the way people are, and is one of the reasons that RT will have such a battle in gaining mindshare. As in a game of chess, the strategic use of resources is the name of the game: 1) focus on current technologies and paradigms and build to the future, or 2) leap frog the current technologies and paradigms and create the future now. What is the right answer? As a greedy consumer, I want it all, I want it now, and I want it free! But that is not the way it really works. Everything comes at a price. I truly wish RT the best of luck in this game of strategy. I'm glad I'm not having to make the hard descisions! Regards to all contributors, --Scott Jones
