Given that Craig Mundie still has a job with Micro$oft, (after suggesting an “Internet drivers’ licence“) it’s pretty apparent where the Rogues of Redmond stand on the topic of Internet freedom: one giant goose step to the right of Google China. Which means it’s apparent that free people need to fire Microsoft. They haven’t been making money from me…I have Office at work, and I run a Mac. But after this latest episode, I have no desire to run ANY of their software. I’ve been meaning to look at OpenOffice or something similar for Rusty, who uses MS Works and expects me to open her word processing documents, so I might go that way myself. Meanwhile I have a laptop I mainly use for conference email, which is blessed with Vista. Given that I can barely figure out Windows, I’m a little nervous about Linux, but maybe it’s time for me to learn (possibly with a cheapie used machine). That should frost Mundie’s butt, given that he’s apparently also a foe of open source. Personally, I hope he finds himself so unemployed that he’d have to go to North Korea to find another tech job.
Fire Mundie, or fire Microsoft
