And 80%+ of the world uses Windows but that doesn't make it any more
respectable IMHO.

Sorry David, even running with low batteries in my calculator, I still
can't seem to factor in value per cost for me. However, it also largely
depends on the audience you're servicing. 97% of my purchasers don't use a
credit card and I don't pay bank service fees for deposits or widthdrawls
so what little service I did get was pricey. Your own
situation/demographics may differ.

I won't even comment on the "other" things Kagi does(?) for you, I don't
have a can large enough for the worms.
