Don't worry about I2O. Look around: how many I2O motherboards do you see,
as compared to non-I2O motherboards?
Look at it this way: you think microsoft is that interested in requiring
a second operating system (vxworks) to make NT go?
I2O will be a footnote in a year or so. After that, it will be forgotten
and in 10 years someone else will reinvent the idea and learn the hard
way why it is a bad one (as I2O is itself a reinvention of old, bad ideas).
