Google "Beneath the sheen of do-gooder ideology, FairSearch can be most charitably described as a Google watchdog. It seeks to fan the flames of disapproval where they've started organically, originate them where they haven't, and generally disseminate negativity toward the Google brand. Think of it as a PR firm working to destroy rather than create goodwill." To make matters worse, FairSearch' work isn't even very good.

No comments on other points but...

"and microsoft can start supporting open source projects"

Actually they have CodePlex to host open source projects. Many Windows (Phone) development components are hosted over CodePlex (from Microsoft and 3rd party developers).

when I say support, I also mean real money, like Google Summer of Code.
