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.

It doesn't matter how much it cost MS, 1 buck or 300 million, the reason MS did it was because they looked like a bunch of saps, a patsy, they looked like like they were either involved with the raid, or manipulated by the Russian government. It's bad PR.

This is MS saying "We won't let that happen again", it has nothing to do with money
