    Despite the flaws in Windows, Bill Gates still donates huge amounts of money to charity. Get rid of 'Microsoft' and you are failing charities all over.

    Linux (pronounced line-ucks) needs to be banned. Linux pronounced linn-ooks is still allowed though :P

    no, you can't ban linux, no matter how it's pronounced :P
