Microsoft Bart Eppenauer, Microsoft's chief patent guy, in an interview with The Verge: "We believe our patent laws have served the country very well." Loosely translated, this reads: "This system that gives me my six-figure income and is a fine anti-competitive tool for my company have served me and my company well, the damage to the industry be damned."

So I take it you've researched all the websites you visit and made sure they didn't run Windows servers? You've never played an Xbox game?

It is easy to reduce the footprint of Microsoft and Apple products in your life at the very least. You may not be able to remove them completely but I have switched to Linux and Android and don't feel the need for MS or Apple Products for most for what I do. I use Windows occasionally at work. Thats it
