Very good point. Personally, I'm not afraid of Microsoft - it's not like
they'll run out and install Windows XP on my machines while I'm not looking.
They can try to "sell" their ideas to us, and who knows, we might learn
something in the process - whether it's from a technology standpoint or other.
I also find it deliciously ironic that the same clowns that scream
"censorship" and "free speech" at every turn, are now the ones doing the same
when it comes to a Microsoft presentation. The hypocrisy is astounding !
