    A US federal court has ordered Microsoft to pay over $290m (£175m) for
    wilfully infringing on a patent by Canadian firm i4i........

    Microsoft Word's $290m patent row
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/8197990.stm

    I don't know how anyone could possibly have a patent on xml, which seems so
    similar to other technologies like html, but there ya go.

    The court also ordered MS to stop selling Word in the US. Course, MS is
    appealing.

    IMHO - MS is not very appealing at all!

    So why are you hanging out in the MS forum? You secretly use MS at
    night and are a Open Sores Hypocrite during the day?

    So why do you hang out in the Vista forum if you hate Microsoft?
    Shouldn't you be in the Ubuntu forum helping those sorry sacks who
    believe they have a decent OS when in reality they have SHIT?

    Oops, you don't know anything about Ubuntu. That's why you troll here.

    Again, sigh, I don't hate anything but hatred. If something doesn't
    appeal to me, that doesn't mean I hate it. Course, you *are* famous for
    leaps of logic.
    No, my noble and sacred mission is to tell people about Linux and get
    rid of all the net bots and infected computers on the Internet.
    Your only mission here is to lie and insult people.

    Um, you only speak for yourself, no "we" involved.

    but you won't take the hint and **** off. When
    If you're not interested in my posts, why do you read and reply to them?
    I ordered a copy myself for gaming (but I paid A LOT less), the only
    real thing Windows is good for.

    People tell you that you are an IDIOT and it goes over your STONED head. Why not go help those
    sorry sacks in the Ubuntu forum who believe they have a decent OS when in reality they have SHIT.

    I'm not stoned. I am not an idiot. I am not in a popularity contest. All
    pioneers encounter dumb fucks like you and Brian W. who try to stand in
    the way of progress. You will lose and no one really cares if you like
    or don't like Ubuntu. My posts are not directed at small and close
    minded morons like you.

    Why not go help those sorry sacks in the Ubuntu forum who believe
    I can see you haven't read the Ubuntu Usenet group lately. It's full of
    very happy Ubuntu users who have left the Windows world for good.

    You are a small minded moron. If you had half a brain, you would have figured out long ago
    that the VISTA forum is not the place to start an Ubuntu campaign. Imagine that. If you
    really want to make progress, why not target people who don't have Windows but would like to
    use a computer?

    Put your effort where it belongs and it doesn't belong here. You get told quite often that
    this is not the place for your misguided mission. Not just by me but by many others.
    Therefore you must be stupid if you continue being an IDIOT.

    I am not standing in the way of progress. Not at all. I think Ubuntu is the right product for
    quite a few people but this is not the place for that.

    I am glad there are other options for operating systems. I am glad that Linux is always
    barking at the heels of Microsoft.

    No go smoke another BOWL.
    You really must have a reading comprehension problem. Take a look at the problems. Take a
    look at the counts for each group. I'll bet you haven't done that. Do you know how many
    people post with problems? Thousands. Oops. You have no clue as usual.

    You are stupid and you confirm that each and every day you post.

    Your ill informed opinion, laced with unfounded insults. A LOT of
    lurkers have emailed me and followed my advice to nuke Vista and install
    Ubuntu. If that were to stop, you would have a point but it doesn't so
    either help my in my quest or get the **** out of the way.

    Bullshit. I read the posts. When people are unhappy with Vista they ask about going back to
    XP. Now that Windows 7 is coming out, they ask about Windows 7. Nobody says that they are
    ditching Windows for Ubuntu. Just doesn't happen here.

    What is your next lie? Oh yea, you made 4323 Euros today! HA HA HA HA HA
