I think _you_ missed the important point: It's the other way around.

They _need_ a decent platform.

We don't need them.

We don't need Adobe Acrobat. We don't need Adobe Photoshop.
We don't need Microsoft Office and other parafernalia.
We don't need DB2, Informix, etc...

Rather it's the other way around...

But that's a discussion for another day.
