NotMac Challenge frees OS X users and pays developers

What the...? How is this so called challenge even relevant? Most of the point of .Mac is ONLINE storage and supposed EVERYWHERE access from multiple systems. Why would I want to set it up inside my own house? So if my house burns down I lose originals AND backups? I suppose now everyone wants companies to run their datacenters for absolutely free, with no income to pay for, oh, I don't know, salaries, utilities, employee health care, and whatever other meaningless charges. $99 is highway robbery for people who just bought a $2000 computer? Get real folks. Open source is fine but it can't replace PHYSICAL objects, which is what the .Mac datacenter is.
