Microsoft defends sweatshop conditions in China

| Microsoft fends off bad factory conditions
| A new report claims Redmond-based Microsoft is more concerned about its 
| copyrights and piracy in China than the workers who make their products 
| there.  
| The National Labor Committee spotlighted a factory in Dongguan City, China, 
| that makes keyboards and other parts for Microsoft, as well as Dell, HP and 
| others. It found the workers are being subjected to miserable conditions.  
| Among the findings: young workers sit on hard stools for 12 hours a day, 7 
| days a week - exceeding China's legal limit. 
| They're allowed one second to snap each key on a keyboard into place, 
| performing the same operation a million times in a month. Each is paid a base 
| wage of 61-cents an hour.   


"We need to slaughter Novell before they get stronger….If you’re going to kill
someone, there isn’t much reason to get all worked up about it and angry. You
just pull the trigger. Any discussions beforehand are a waste of time. We need
to smile at Novell while we pull the trigger."

                --Jim Allchin, Platform Group Vice President


Wipro Microsoft alliance is a shame for all Indians – alliance or slavery?

| The alliance uses Microsoft technologies instead of challenging Gates in his
| own game. Wipro is just a servant of Microsoft facilitating Indian cyber
| slavery under the American corporate banners.
