My point was to say Linux users are usually more tech savvy than XBox 
and Playstation users.  If they say they have a high speed connection 
and they don't and that decision ends up costing them more money in ISP 
costs, then that's on them.  Still, that's really not the crux of what 
I've been trying to say.

I completely agree.  My comments on this topic were meant solely to 
counter the notion that it must be completely abandoned, low 
bandwidth/high-cost bandwidth users be damned.  I was merely trying to 
illustrate that there may be a way to make everyone happy.
