In the News Okay, so this is entirely new to me. Sparrow is was an email client for Mac OS X and iOS (and Windows), which brought a decent Gmail experience to these platforms - as opposed to Apple's own not-so-good Gmail support and Google's Gmail iOS application which, well, is just a webpage. Google has now acquired Sparrow, and basically all hell has broken loose, to the point of Rian van der Merwe writing that 'we' lost "faith in a philosophy that we thought was a sustainable way to ensure a healthy future for independent software development, where most innovation happens".

I'll admit that I do have a dog in this fight in terms of bias against Microsoft and it's founders.

"but it has been said that the Gates Foundation"

If this is the best evidence available though, "it has been said that" baseless claims by forum posters, then as someone else already said; the original poster needs to grow up.
