Nice.  The trickle becomes a flow.  Flood to follow? 

I give Microsoft a decade on top, max, unless they cop on.  Remember Big Blue on the desktop?  Some of you are too young but I distinctly remember old timers laughing off Microsoft as harmless.  The circle of life.

Cool.  I actually thought it would have happened sooner.  Glad to see it.

Good question.  Should be worth more really even though costs would be less.  Guess it depends on the bundle.

LOL The news story in that link shows a picture of Larry Ellison, who'd give up his first-born to be Bill Gates.
