YES !!

Just do the following multiplication:

No. of different mainboards x No. of different CPU x
No. of different RAM manufacturers x No. of different video cards x
No. of different hard disk interfaces x IDE + SCSI etc x Network x
hard disks x add on cards (sound, isdn, etc., etc., etc...)

Maybe it could be possible to build a different computer for each
human being in Earth !!
