If I had this, I'd feel the same way. ;-) I guess it takes proprietary
products and knowledge get you there.

Of course, as complex as products are today, that's what it'd cost to
compete as well.

The real world is a tough place for sure.  Not much room for people at this

Here it is... Malice {:-)}.

This is a official quote by Microsoft Corp.'s
Windows operating-system chief, Jim Allchin.

    "Open source is an intellectual-property destroyer.  I can't
     imagine something that could be worse than this for the software
     business and the intellectual-property business."

     "I'm an American, I believe in the American Way.  I worry if the
      government encourages open source, and I don't think we've done
      enough education of policy makers to understand the threat."
