Heh, this thread kinda verifies a theory subscribe to... show people something new, and unless it's as easy to explain as "it heats frozen food quickly", most will throw up on it and say "what's it good for?". (In the case of the microwave oven, most would say "but I _have_ an oven", and "I thaw food for the next day overnight and heat it in a pot in five minutes anyway!". It took a few years for people to 'get it', and now everyone has it.)
So for myself, I now feel like one of those who don't 'get it' (well, not all of it anyway). Until I get it, I will keep any thoughts like "Why is it better than my Linux running E-UAE?" to myself.
I ask you instead
Why is this good?
