Microsoft sues Rochester firm for piracy

,----[ Quote ]
As part of a global antipiracy push, software giant Microsoft is
taking aim at a Rochester business -- Miracle Computer LLC.

In a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis Monday,
the maker of the Windows operating system accuses Miracle of a
practice called hard-disk loading, meaning selling computers with
unlicensed versions of Microsoft software.


This doesn't actually bother me one way or the other. I think they
should sue pirates, and anyone who does pirate software (MS's or
anyone else's) should not get away with it.

This is totally different to MS excluding others from competing with
them of course.

It bothers Spamowitz because it's Microsoft and he thinks they should give their work away for free. But when someone asks him (or most any Linux idiot hypocrite) to work for free, they refuse.

I don't believe that's the case. I think most linux advocates couldn't care less about MS software. They just want the freedom for their ecosystem to grow and thrive.
