    Chalk one up for the good guys

    Microsoft has dropped its experimental subscription licensing scheme for Microsoft Office, citing the reason as "customers were not ready to embrace the subscription concept."

    "A large enough percentage of these customers did not realize that the product would expire at the end of the subscription period," Wilkinson said. "A lot of people were attracted to the price point and thought they had just scored a bargain."
    Do what you want with the girl, but leave me alone!

    And it begin.... Just when M$ create an interesting Windows version (in fact the only non beta version since 3.1), they begin to sink themselves with a lot of stupid things like subscription licensing, .NET, and liberty problems in Palladium.
    They have forgotten their products are bought by people with a minimum of intelligence(really a minimum for buying Windows since all this time without complain but it exist.... I hope). And it is strange but people are very smart for money
    Life is boring. Play NetHack... --more--
