| For an undisclosed sum reputed to be in the billions, Microsoft's Bill

| Saying he "was sick and tired of open-source eating away at his profits,"
| the world's richest man decided to put an end to the nuisance and simply
| buy OpenOffice.org. It will form part of a growing list of Microsoft
| acquisitions, including several erstwhile competitors, a considerable
| number of prominent politicians, and a few small governments.
