Spriteman: as far as Apple iBooks go, I don't. A truly horrible prettified GUI locking you out of BSD is not my idea of fun computing. And I've been down the road of selling Macs because they weren't Windows. And been absolutely stitched up like a kipper and left hanging out to dry when the support suddenly disappeared. I happily sell FSC kit. It works, and is well built. If it goes wrong, a Siemens bod goes and fixes it. So it runs Windows, but that's what my customers want. I can sell a naked server for under 500 quid, though, if you want to run BSD on it.
