Subj: Bill Only Tells The Truth?

I'm not sure close examination of the wording of statements from
Microsoft, even from the Olympian heights of Bill Gates , are due great

After all, do you believe every detail in this:  ``Steve Ballmer, chief
executive officer at Microsoft. "Windows XP will be the highest-quality
Microsoft operating system ever, and Microsoft and our associates are
committed to delivering a set of amazing new computing experiences that
will set a new paradigm for PC users around the world."''

Microsoft says whatever it can get away with to increase profits.

A few observation and much reasoning lead to error; many
observations and a little reasoning to truth.

Subj: Who visited Seattle?

A few months ago a NZ govt minister visited a MS
governmental 'briefing' in Settle.  Can’t find the link
now, but I wonder if it was Trevor Mallard (or Paul Swan?)
that swallowed the sales pitch hook, line and sinker.

I just hope at least one minister takes a look at the
netcraft site & realizes that most of the internet does not
rely on MS software…
