A lot of people would see microsoft at the good guy side, but this looks different. They don’t do anything against unemployment as they don’t do anything beneficial for your computer. Let me recall a simple fact, you agree the EULA with all parts and subparts if you use a microsoft operating system. Means all of your files are copied to MS servers and so to the NSA, as you transcribe your computer to them. They have the rights to search on your computer and uninstall your software from remote. Such kind of ‘piss you in the face’ contracts are there to wake you up. Take your responsibility back, investigate before signing contracts. What else will you sign with few mouse clicks?
The big benefit for MS is bundling with computer hardware as a taxation, so smart that only the Free Software Foundation is running campaigns against it. So let me repeat, it’s not patriotism or to do something for the jobs in the US to use such products, it is time to learn what a monopole and it’s hindrance for a market means.
