so it's one rule for the monopolist, and another for everyone else? how can
the community be seen to be operating on a professional level when this
persistent attitude exists of "kill bill gates" and "destroy microsoft" (or
similar derogatory terms) ...
Instead of constantly slurring the guy and his corporation, why not create
better, faster, stronger tools (sorry to plagiarise Six Million Dollar Man
there) and software, and intelligently promote them, instead of all this
Microsoft-bashing ... most people I know who work in the lower echelons of
Microsoft society are good people - they're not _all_ as bad as is made out
I just noticed MJ's response to you ... it's the bloody Judean People's
