Comment of the day from the story, "How Apple and Microsoft are advancing desktop Linux"

As a lazy, apathetic XP user, my husband finally drove it home to me with this.

OK Ms. Business owner, here is what I want you to do. I want you to contract me as your vendor. I want you to sign an agreement that you will not hold me responsible if I do not perform as indicated, nor will you bring action against me if my services cause you loss of business or equipment damage. I want full access to your complete vendor lists at all time and permission to impede you from attempting to do business with them. I claim the right to change your business environment so that only my business can provide you the services I supply, and then I will schedule you for price increases and service charges as I see fit.

Sign here please. I had no idea what the "EULA" said. I simply clicked ok and used the software. Now, anytime I see a Microsoft EULA, I scan it for a clause that enables them to enter my children into slavery. Any business owner that allows this garbage to run her business is either already a slave to the machine or just not paying attention. Either way, abuse is imminent. I may chafe at the thought of my husband being right, but I refuse to allow thieves to control my business.
