Yeah... like Vista 'resolves' this.

Don't worry about Microsoft. They dabble in a business model where Windows is
given away almost for free. As for their shareholders, well... that's another
story. They are too busy trying "f* kill" Free(dom) software.

Some Windows sub-notebooks actually come with StarOffice. But... I'm not sure
Microsoft is too thrilled about it. It harms their most profitable monopoly.
