I might come as a surprise to you, but:
1) not all the world is i386, ELF, Linux
2) there's more UPSes than your little home boxes. I should throw away 
my ~ 25KW worth of serial only, relatively new UPSes, right, For the 
record, I have 0 USB ones.

this is hilarous.

you do have a point abourt the config. this is not exactly news tho.
