    Just keep in mind that your little check, combined with hundreds of thousands of others, came out of M$’s bank account.On the flip side, consider that a couple of law firms that cares nothing about FOSS, SUNW, MS, etc made millions off this.Finally, in the end, keep in mind that this will increase the cost of computing for all of us.Instead of the laser mouse, why not donate the check to the Free Software Law Center? http://www.softwarefreedom.org/

  2. “Just keep in mind that your little check, combined with hundreds of thousands of others, came out of M$’s bank account.”

    Ya, thats the point.

    “On the flip side, consider that a couple of law firms that cares nothing about FOSS, SUNW, MS, etc made millions off this.”

    Thats how the system works. If you have a better alternative, I suggest you persue it.

    “Finally, in the end, keep in mind that this will increase the cost of computing for all of us.”

    What evidence do you have of this? Perhaps by *not* filing this lawsuit, the “cost of computing” would have increased. Its called checks and balances.

    Certainly something I’ll look into, thx.
