I actually wanted to stay out of this thread since its whole idea was  
to reduce traffic but I think this reply is really weird and  
completely misses  the tone. I mainly asked for something and clearly  
said that I'm aware that others might disagree. In no way did I try  
to intimidate or censor anyone.If the majority on this list doesn't  
share my opinion -> fair enough, go on. For my part, I'm on this list  
to discuss (Xe)(La)TeX related issues and in this area the  
implications of the Intel switch are not very severe.
