Do you have any links/proofs testifies for this urban legend?

True since he saw dealers as unnecessary 'part of a chain' in distribution computers to people / masses.
There is no reasons for special retailers 'since computers are easy', 'anyone can use computer' - e.g. Amiga is not another PC-compatibile so you do NOT need 300 pages manual to use it (and ST is even more friendly-user computer, even more than Mac! ).
