Beautifully put. Like I tell people at work when they talk about how "brilliant" M$ is for their ability to make money: a whore can make money. I am no more impressed with the biggest whore in the world than the dime store slut on the street corner. I have more respect for substance. And I am not a fanboy for millionaires and billionaires. Praising M$ is like praising sleazy attorneys or car salesmen.
