A few days ago, a Microsoft exec said something very insulting (in his blog)
about poor people and their choice of software.

If you have even just a nickle, Microsoft wants you hooked as a customer.
Whatever's in your wallet would do. Just give it away or be called a 'pirate'
(a poor pirate that needs to download government .doc forms or run the
Windows-only tax software).
