I have always found their hardware to be of much better quality than their software. Their software is not as bad as a lot of people say but I prefer OSX etc. I have had several M$ mice and keyboards in the past and have been very happy with them.

For someone that already has XP, the cost has already been paid and there is no future cost. If you try to force such a user to upgrade they will quite understandably object. Very few people who are being coerced feel a loyalty to the person (or company) that is coercing them and would rather go down the market and get a copy...

The Taliban, the government that we overthrew, still have offices, still exist, are still there to talk to, and will take over again as soon as we leave, and we will leave one day. There is no option. I do not like to get into these discussions because I do not like to defend the Taliban. I oppose all they stand for but we invaded their country and they defended bravely. I hope that I would be as brave if my country was invaded. We then dropped leaflets that said "if you surrender, you will be sent home". And those that were stupid enough to surrender were sent to Guantanamo along with lots of other poor unfortunates who got sold out because the CIA offered bounties to anyone that could inform on a terrorist, so every bent policeman in Yemen and Pakistan etc. gave the name of someone they did not like and received $1000.

I would be interested to learn why you think you "know" that Bin Laden was a "leader" and that he "approved" attrocities. It is only G.W.'s propaganda that would give you that impression and if you think about some of the other facts that he produced like Saddam's WMD you would realise that his "truth" is doubtful. If you research further you will find lots of reason to doubt the story of Bin Laden. Why was he such a welcome guest in the US? etc. etc. I do not think you "know" anything, you just believe the propaganda like good follower. If he had been brought to trial we may have found out some facts. That is why they killed him.
