The PC Card is dead. It has been for a while. If you want to buy a
substandard tool and get a crappy user experience, go ahead. I will
continue to buy macs. SImilar arguments were made about the trackball,
and a lot of other technologies.

Define "a lot". Doubtless many do, but is it that significant?

I just think it is incredibly disingenuous for a mac user to resist
change. We changed to the PowerPC, we changed to OS X, we change all
the time.

Embrace it.

These guys are not making draconian decisions from the bottom of a
well. They are spending a huge amount of money for market research and
focus groups.

Why does everyone insist that they know better than the people who
talk to a lot more customers than we do.
