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.
