Nicola Larosa -

Bill sucks. Microsoft has no clue. This "Digital Decade" (how catchy!) we
are in happens to run on the *internets*. They are a series of *tubes*.
They are *independent* of your specific operating system. Especially if
they are of the future of which Microsoft wishes to bind you to.
