    Ahem. I am honestly speechless.

    Though the words "Well, you should have thought about that before..." start to come in to my head.

    Poor Baby! He has just been hit with a reality check!

    What would you rather do, pay nothing for the OS (ie Linux) or pay out of your a$$? (ie: Windows)

    He talks about how it would cost the company to make the improvements to the OS, yet Linux communities have been doing it for "ages".....

    The bastard is nothing but a greedy little bitch, who is trying to sell himself and his company to the courts. Hopefully, the Judges can see through "windows" and the pile of crap outside

    Yes but he's also an extremely cunning "greedy little bitch". Bill hinted at being "forced" to withdraw Windows from production. What would happen if Windows was suddenly dropped. The IT world would stand still. He didn't get to where he is today for nothing.
