    Actually, Keith, I think it's all a matter of to what kind of people the
    hardware marketroids target. Modems are popular, everyone has a modem.
    Printers are popular, everyone has a printer. Windows is popular, everyone
    has windows. However, Joe User doesnt need a NE2000, so no card.. Joe
    Sysadmin would, but he Knows about winstuff.

    Of course I might be absolutely wrong.
