This comic strip is a great example of the economics of commercial software. MS creates a demand together with hardware manufacturers. Call centers pop like mushrooms in an effort to "lessen" the calls because of buggy software that costs so much. When there are lesser bugs/viruses/spyware to solve , another version of the software come up to feed the family of the techs and programmers. maybe if we have stayed with win2k/win98/winMe there would be hunger/unemployment/war in most parts of the world. So, should we really thank MS for their buggy software? what if open-source software gets a larger slice of the software market, will there also be unemployment/hunger around the world?

Free Open Source Software has spurred the huge growth of industry worldwide. China has Red Flag Linux,running their economy. India, Europe, Iran (Farsi), and Arabia translated GNU/Linux to their many languages! Many countries have threatened Microsoft over the lack of their language pack, so MS is going back to the drawing board. Yeah, Linux does the most languages. Linux is also immune to the "114,000 Microsoft Virus Definitions" for intelligent folks who think "outside the Microsoft Box" and want true freedom to choose who 'owns' their data! If you like tyranny, and all the ills endemic to it, choose the Evil Empire of the multiple convicted Pirate Felon Microsoft. I choose Open Source GNU/Linux and *BSD.
