It does everything I need.
Why should I look else where. It's free (as far as I'm concerned (it comes with the PC I buy or the IT dept. buys me a license at work).`

I love that statement!
It's so cute and naive, isn't it?
As free as the box the cookies comes in!
As free as Windows operating systems (OEM)!

Honestly, don't people think they pay for the OEM-software? Do they really think they will pay the same price for a computer without Windows and Works (with Word)?

Somebody's gotta pay for that software. It's you, pal - they calculate it in on the price you pay for the PC.

But please, continue making statements like that - it brightens up my day - it's fun reading (albeit getting old now).
