We definitely represent the exception, but the reasons for it are different for each user.I thought we represented 'the exception to the rule'.
I know I certainly do.
I saw this when I found the first announcement of Pyra in Polish computer magazine's website. Most people posting comments seen Pyra as too expensive toy, recommending a laptop or smartphone. However, for many people who don't want smartphone or notebook there are many reasons for Pyra.
For someone it may be access to lots of games through emulator on a portable machine.
For some Admin, a nice handheld SSH tool for all-type diagnostics and administration.
For me, it may become useful as ultra-portable productivity tool like 200LX I was using since last year, with system security and transparency better than most modern handhelds. General "software freedom" is covered in this "security" too. Although I am not a Stallman's philosophy fan, I use GNU/Linux (not because it's a very good system but because it's less awful than modern Windows) and I think last years computer market got too far with limiting users. They try to stuff users with all things they couldn't stuff in 1990s, now with the power of social marketing. And because they set trends, they won't let users back decide.
