    That was quite an unusual post, I agree.

    I defend his right to say it. I believe in free speech.

    If you want an MS appreciation forum, why don't you set up your own ?

    There is a very old saying: Don't defecate where you eat!
    What is "Beneath Contempt" is Microsoft
    When Microsoft singled out one man, stole part of his coding written for product activation, drags him through court crying "we didn't do it" until they see that there is a good possibility (after about 3 separate rulings) that they are going to get spanked and handed over $388 million to make it go away, it was an invitational precedent to be defecated on. Two OS's One Cup.

    Microsoft invented piracy, they also invented bullying in the industry. The greatest thing BG ever brought to computing was the art of collecting other peoples stuff and presenting it with a new coat of paint, I swear he and SJ are the same person. Good on him for being one of the greatest entrepreneurs ever, screw him for being unoriginal.

    All the coding and tech that MS (and Apple .. etc) accumulated to be able to eventually squash everyone in their way, and humiliate those that dare challenge them, came from the little guys that they prosecute.
    Why do you not start your own anti Microsoft forum? And why oh why are you using MS products? Pathetic!
    Who said Im anti Microsoft? I believe I am allowed my opinion without being belittled by a fellow forum member. Hit a nerve? Bad day?

    I just find that the aspect of one company owning a majority of an industry, being a big part of what is wrong with this planet . Only thing worse is the tactics used to achieve such a position.

    Possibly. That is exactly the point.That is why MS are facing a privacy storm. They pretend to be "better" than the others

    Actually, you are only guaranteed free speech on government owned property. If you're on private property, you're at the whims of whoever owns that property. This is why we can't legally yell, "Fire!" in a movie theater or call our managers what they really are without being fired.

Hi there I really checked the date to make sure it wasn't April 1 See that John Mcafee (of Mcafee security packages etc) has been arrested -- it might not have been him since he's still wanted by authorities in Belize -- but still a good read. John McAfee 'double' arrested as fugitive...
