I don't think its just about microsoft it's about disempowering
individuals and the loss of democracy

I think that it's totally apropriate as computerbank is an organisation
about empowering people with information technology and S11 is about
protesting the disempowering of individuals

The whole free software movement is based on the premis of empowering
people (users) and not restricting the rights of the individual


Digging his heels in for a extended debate.
