This submitter has the typical Slashdot FOSS douchebag attitude. This case has NOTHING TO DO with open source software, yet you can always find a way to jam it in there eh?
...Lobbying needs to be illegal. Period.
Microsoft gave the business community a decade, support and all. Bureaucracy and inefficiency shouldn't be Microsofts problem
Not two or three, more like four or five now. SP3 was released in 08, and once 7 released, manufacturers made the switch.
What software company is still actively supporting products from 2003?
It's been over a decade, guys. I understand there are legacy software needs, but you've had ample time to find a replacement.
Well what do you expect? Zillow can't view the interior of the homes they price, so they can only make an assumption based upon market trends and exterior features.

The same thing happened when the first 1080P screens came out. The market will adapt, there's no problem here.
Seriously, you could "try" and take away all the guns...but if you really wanted one, you could always get one. Same with drugs, the black market is ALWAYS there.
And the libs always tend to forget that guns actually help save lies as well. I was reading an article not too long ago about a single mother who was sleeping with her newborn child, when she heard someone trying to break in. She grabbed her shotgun, and as soon as the two perps walked into the house, she shot them dead. Now if she didn't have her gun, she could've been killed and her baby orphaned.
He's not only a fantastic meth cook, but a stellar physicist as well
I have a team, and have started the groundbreaking, but one crucial question remains: How would I monetize a website like this? Should I host advertisements, or take a percentage of the job cost? Also, what payment methods should I use?"
