Why would you want even wear? Then all of your clothes become worn out at the same time. Grabbing the first in line ensures a gradient wear across your clothing, allowing you to only replace a single item at a time while preserving a pristine collection of clothing for special occasions.

People go where the content is. If The Pirate Bay were only accessible over the Tor network there would be tons more traffic there, thus more information on how to access it. If enough content were only accessible over Tor soon there would be extensions for web browsers that would make it as easy to get there as any other site.

I work for an OEM. We are small and sell mostly to businesses. However every system we sell has a Vista License and easily 99% of them have an XP DOWNGRADE installed on them. I am sure this is just because these businesses want to keep their OSes congruent with all their other systems. But they do buy the vast majority of our systems. You are right though, most the systems we sell to "regular folk" do have Vista installed. But that is a very small fraction of our sales.
