Unfairness microsoft style
Its not good to stop potentials just because they might be good at engineer pver a nice long learning curve.
People like me have been stomped on and abused for ideas by microsoft and they never trully seem to blossom the best from there own pool in terms of form.
Why is this
I know my brain is worth a hell of a lot from my ideas but At IBM and such you engineering guys should know its a bit more than just the dreams its about realisation and engineering.
So anyway thats all i've wanted is the same oppertunity anyone has given a roof, PC and the work market but microsoft is being unfair and limiting the potential of the whole human race amonst other B**ps where do you stand.

What are you trying to say?
I don't think Microsoft is preventing you from composing coherent sentences, so there must be something else going on here...

Botnets of "computers"???
What computers? What OS are they running? Why can't cnet ever
manage to include simple but important facts like these into their
articles? If people are to learn anything from stories like these, they
should learn what OS is most often compromised to the point of
turning a PC into a bot.

Well
Most likely one of the common ones. To try to make a make a botnet out of anything with less than 10% market share would be pointless.
