I think Xandros said "they needed the money". It's not about the Big Wolf.
It's more about Sugar Daddy (who offers money to manipulate/destroy a free
and diverse market). Microsoft is being anti-capitalist. Beware as they
could soon just merge with China, not just with visas and offshoring... oh,

McCain comes out against Net Neutrality; Says would hire Microsoft CEO Steve

They say China will inherit the world of technology which was once dominated
by thr west. Maybe Microsoft just wants to be a relevant part of it.
