i don't like supporting M$, but unfortunately i need the compatability of windows, for school and well also games, so im stuck regardless, which really sucks cause i don't really feel like shelling out another couple hundred dollars to support Gates

well if its any assurance, bill gates is the biggest philanthropist ever (until that buffet guy gave like 40bill). he donates almost all his annual income which is somewhere around 3 or 4 billion dollars. the gates and melinda foundation has done a lot of good in fighting diseases and donating computers to under-funded schools and stuff like that..

BUT... ms still doesnt' deserve all that money, hehe.

i wonder if pirating vista will be as easy as xp. (i wholly condemn all piracy in every sort, i'm merely asking out of curiosity.)







*elude suspicion*

check.

Well, God. **** m$. THis sucks. My next pc is going to be around vista. I miles well get the most expensive. If I have to I will just stick with xp for 6 months before vista comes out. **** I won't have it when it releases. **** **** ****

$400 is way too much for an OS, it better include Office professional or an xbox 360, whoever pays that much for a glorified OS is out of their mind.
