Comment: Re:Microsoft Will Prop Up Europe In the Face of... (Score 1) 537

I'd like to see it done chessboard-style: the fine is one Euro on the first day, and it doubles each day after that. After a month, it would be starting to hurt.

Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?
