I really really respect Miguel. Although he is an idealist he is also practical. He wants good tech just as much as he wants ideology(freedom).

Futhermore he never seems to have allready choses sides on anything. He always considers and he sees good and bad on both sides. *As is it (obviously) really is*

Agreed, but it seems to me that Miguel is always on the pro-Microsoft side of any camp that he respectfully belongs to.
