Comment: The problem: they do not pay for their lessons (Score 2, Insightful) 145

It might well be that they learn (slowly, like the slowest of your "friends" in 1st grade), the lessons of open source.

But then, they will not pay. They _claim_ to care about "intellectual property". But only when a _laywer_ that can _sue_ them, they will _respect_ the lessons to be something of value.

So I will be glad when they are destroyed, once for all, and everybody else trying to _exploit_ others' work will have something to fear for.

I mean, Microsoft _invented_ the notion that you should be paid for the _same_ work over and over and over and over again. Only they profited from that. And if you are not a Microsoft shill, you will _have_ to agree that this was unethical.

Now they "learn" from Open Source? Well, even if they do, do they compensate those who taught them something?

I guess not. So this planet will be better off if Microsoft dies a _violent_ death, discouraging all those parasites out there, trying to behave like Microsoft, too.

It's time to boot, do your boot ROMs know where your disk controllers are?

Working...
