i think contemporary declarations of war or wars itself are getting more and more invisible , theres no "right and wrong" , which translate itself to it must be always right and what even more worse is that , to the host it means "must be something wrong with ourselves" ...

yet another good reason why must choose free softwares ...

Why did you put North in the thread title? This is obviously about SOUTH Korea. There's no trade with the hermit kingdom.

Trying to strongarm Korea may blow up in MS's face. Asia is already getting warmed up to the idea of Linux and OSS (much faster than the US is anyway). So instead of caving there is the possibility that they put their search for alternatives into high gear.

which it how I understand it. Having read lots of stuff about how various parts of Asia are fed up with being referred too as the worlds software pirates etc etc.

Which could also be true. Though I still suspect that without economic pressure from a "certain direction" they'll probably just say "big deal"!
