    What is important is THAT IS DOES WORK.

    For all I know, there are a billion tiny hamsters on treadmills at the other end of the powerline outside of my house. It doesn't matter to me. What matters is that I plug in my blender and it crunches ice...
    Exactly the reason the world is the way it is: I don't care HOW things are done as long as they work for ME. Do you realize how incredibly selfish that is in absolutely every sense of the word?

    I need you to post links from reliable sources that explain the major freedom issues of using Windows and other Microsoft products like Office. It has to be easy to understand. I'm explaining this to n00bs!
