Ok I, for one at least, am sick and tried of this crap from the EU. What.. they want to make sure that
there’s a choice? Funk that. Ok let’s think about this for a moment.
I know one way that MS could COMPLETELY send the world to hell in a hand basket.
Yep, you heard me. Send the world back into the dark ages that would take YEARS to get
back out of. People scrambling for techonology and information..
and all M$ would need to do is close it’s doors and revoke ALL EULA’s and contracts.
yep, a world with out M$. and you think that would be a good thing? HA!!
98% of all home computers run a version of Windows. Most business use Windows
as the back bone for their workers. Internet hosts run clusters of windows boxs to
host Windows based hosting packages.. over night.. it’s gone.
think about it.. 1/2 the internet gone.. most Business would no longer be able to function
banks would freeze, people would go nuts.
But we could all switch to Linux.. BULL SHIT. if Linux was easy enough for an AOLer to be able
to get on the net, we all ALREADY would have switched. But guess what? it’s not.
So what are we left with? The EU and other companys bulling M$ into not being able to
make widnows the best it can be. by forcing them to remove or rethink stratagys that have
been in place for months to years before being released to the public.
Hell M$ should just say ‘fine’ we are no longer dealing with the island of Europe.
and drop the contacts, and make it illeagle to use their software anywher on the island.
let’s see how fast the people start to yell and scream. and how FAST the goverment would
change their minds.
