Where did you hear that? I want to see that for myself. Maybe with how serious I am and that article I can start detering people to Linux, or something better but not supported, like BeOS.

The main discussion that was raised around this announcement in Holland is wether we should up with having to pay that heavily for Windows just to sponsor non-profitable projects like the X-box, MNS and such, not to mention Palladium!
With that 85% they make with Windows and Office they are able to put those on the market at a price that no competitor can compeet with.
