Software by Microsoft Is Nearly Free for the Needy
In an effort to expand its global reach in computing, Microsoft plans to
offer a stripped-down version of Windows, Office and other software for $3
to people in developing nations.

I think MS (esp. Bill) is jealous of all of the attention the OLPC
project is getting, and this is his way of getting some too.

Most recent idiotic quote added to KICK (Klassic Idiotic Caption Kooks):
"hahaha...oh, I do detect a hint of jealousy or what! Where Darrell
actually helps people all you do is beg for attention. Shame on you! Go
get professional psychological clinical help with your obvious problems
and stop your bandwidth sucking bullshit postings in this ng. (rip,
snort, belch, burp, chuckle)"

CORRECTION:

I wanted to say I take my "HAT" off to Bill

$3.00 will still be too much for some people. In China they can get pirated
versions of Vista for $1.00 and they don't have to put up with the
activation crap either.
