They are very good programmer. What pisses me off is not the offshoring, but
the lies (excuses and truth-bending) you constantly hear from the CEOs. Just
watch Gates as he mocks the intelligence of Americans in order to justify cost
savings. It's appalling, coming from the same man who says that an average
computer user has the brain of a spidermonkey. You can probably still remember
the things he said in that page about his attitude towards software bugs.

Let's watch what they do. On the Internet, crimes can be made shallow,
particularly owing to bloggers who are close to the incidents (the
OpenMalaysia Blog for example).
