I ride a bike (though not so often as I ought to do), don't have any kind of 
motor vehicle, and build my computers out of spare parts. 

If I could have got my old rotten Apple or Windoze systems to behave and do 
what I wanted, I would probably have stuck with that, and never gone down 
this rabbit hole. I am not such a purist, that I care to argue about this or 
that; I only know what works best for me.
