Microsoft Who said a public outcry - even if it's just on the internet - never helped anyone? Yesterday, we reported on The New York Times' findings that Microsoft lawyers were taking part in raids on opposition groups in Russia. 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.

While your rant quite clearly indicates your literacy, perhaps your comprehension skills are what's lacking. I didn't ask "what about Linux", I didn't suggest they use Linux, I didn't even comment on the viability of Linux as an alternative. I just snidely insinuated that Microsoft aren't being as altogether altruistic as they would have us believe, and that their motivation was fear of a large migration away from Windows.

As an aside, I have been a Linux user for several years now, and I have had only ONE problem in that whole time: pulse audio used to make my laptop speakers make a small popping noise. So very minor and so easy to fix. None of my friends have nearly such a smooth experience with Windows, but I'm not so insecure as to go trolling about it.
