Microsoft Predictions Coming to Pass
Author: JT Smith
Kelly McNeill writes "I firmly expect to see and hear Microsoft calling out for taxpayer subsidies in a few years time. All big companies tell the government to get lost when things are going well, but go cap-in-hand to scrounge off the taxpayer when things aren't so good. Microsoft has already set the scene with its claim that the U.S. economy is dependent on its latest "upgrade" being delivered on time. Ditto the world economy... At least we have Wine, Twin, Twine, Reactos, OWP, et al, to help us break the Microsoft dependencies."
