Microsoft Now this is something you don't read every day. Dick Brass, vice president at Microsoft from 1997 to 2004, has written an article for The New York Times' Op-Ed section, detailing the flaws in Microsoft's corporate culture, and how they've severely affected the company in a negative way. Telling, and painful. And, in a way, very sad. Update: Microsoft responds. "For Microsoft, it is not sufficient to simply have a good idea, or a great idea, or even a cool idea. We measure our work by its broad impact."

You're such an idiot it's painful to respond, but I will.

So ... you mention that OS's and Office apps are moving towards being free, and you pull up the example of OpenOffice and Linux.

I respond by saying nobody pays for Linux/Linux-based Office apps, and nobody ever has.

Then, another dumbass jumps in and spouts off about RedHat Enterprise Linux on the Server! NOT free!

I reply and say, "no shit, but he was obviously talking about desktop Linux OS, since he was also talking about using Office apps."

Now, you come back and say you weren't talking about desktop linux and Office apps .... so ... you were instead talking about Linux on the server, and Linux Office apps on the server? Is that your stance, now?

If so, you're even dumber than the dumbest freetard, which is a pretty good feat.
