You don't have a G-d given right to use other
people's work without paying a fee for it. You're
not smart enough (apparently) to realize that the
only reason that you have so many choices of
incredibly inexpensive hardware to run your free
software on is because of all of the money that
microsoft has spent and EARNED to create markets
that make it feasible for so many vendors to
thrive in. You're like the typical liberal moron
who complains about all the money the gov't
spends on war while you bask in the freedom that
the wars have made possible. Get a clue. You
don't understand business or markets or anything
that is important.
