Windows 7 Source Code
Microsoft gave over all its source code for Windows 7 to Russia. The author of this article from ZDNET goes over why this piece of news is so astonishingly stupid. His links inside the article paste together a very frightening picture. I’ve always admired Bill Gates. Along with being nearly the richest man in the world, he is also one of the world’s biggest employers and philanthropists. He’s survived yearly extortion from the government and no matter how liberal he is nothing short of pictures of him and his family in a soup line wearing rags will ever be enough for his jealous liberal compatriots. The turnover of Microsoft Windows 7 source code, if true to this author’s accounting, is treason and a betrayal of Microsoft users. I can’t help but hope this is a bunch of crap the government made up in yet another extortion attempt. It seems if Gates doesn’t fill every politician’s pockets with money every year the government launches another investigation until he does.
