Gates' ego reportedly crushed by Linux user

Author: JT Smith

From the humor site, Segfault: "Microsoft chairman Bill Gates' ego was reportedly 'crushed' today by a sarcastic anti-Microsoft comment on
the Internet. Linux user Tim Hampton referred to the company as 'Micro$oft' in a story on satirical news site
CoreDump.org, immediately provoking a unprecedented public backlash against the Redmond software giant.

'I'd always been a loyal Microsoft consumer,' said one CoreDump.org reader. 'But after reading that story, I've
come to realize the awful truth: Microsoft is a large publically-traded corporation that deals with significant
amounts of money. I'm never buying one of their products again.'
