| Thats not the way I see it.  On a particularly interesting article from April 
| 2008, Bill Gates is reported as saying: 
| “I think if you invent drugs, you should be able to charge for them,”
| I believe that Microsoft is getting the RC out to the masses quickly and 
| before the EU makes any ruling.  That way, if it does, people will already 
| have Windows 7 on their machines.  It is reported on Boycott Novell that Bill 
| Gates has in the past said words to the effect of “get them hooked, we’ll 
| work out how to get a return later”  If this is correct then in my opinion 
| its like the local drug dealer giving out freebies to the kids prior to the 
| drug becoming illegal expecting a return from the addicts at a later date.      
| Think my example is a little OTT?  Well its Bill Gates mentioning drugs, not 
| me.

| "Microsoft's strategy of getting developing nations hooked on its
| software was clearly outlined by Bill Gates almost a decade ago," said
| Con Zymaris, CEO of long-standing open source firm Cybersource.
| Specifically, Bill Gates, citing China as an example, said:
|   "Although about 3 million computers get sold every year in China, but
|   people don't pay for the software," he said. "Someday they will, though.
|   As long as they are going to steal it, we want them to steal ours.
|   They'll get sort of addicted, and then we'll somehow figure out how to
|   collect sometime in the next decade."[1]


Adobe targets school kids to get them hooked on software

| Adobe is where the 'apps' are manufactured. These apps that have the
| power to make images appear before our children's eyes. "There were
| all these, like, stars, and they were rotating. It really captured
| my attention," said Nigel, 14, hardly more than a child, but with
| the vacant expression of a man who has spent hours looking at a
| screen. Nigel has now discovered he needs glasses.
