Microsoft Who said a public outcry - even if it's just on the internet - never helped anyone?

Today, Microsoft has announced a number of steps to fix the situation - the most significant of which is a unilateral software license extended to all NGOs in Russia and several other countries.

FTA:

Over 2009, the company donated over $390 million in software

Actually, since Microsoft donated it, it is in reality a case of: "Over 2009, the company donated over a million round discs of plastic".

It is only "over $390 million in software" if anyone but Microsoft donated it.
