I completely agree with and support entities "copying" and improving on other entities software. But Microsoft fails to do this. Yes, they copy other's software, as do the toaster companies. But the toaster companies [most likely] *improved* on the toaster they copied from. Name ONE time that MS has copied something and actually *improved* it. NEVER! They just blatantly copy it, deny they did it, re-sell it, bundle it with Dell/Hp/etc computers (enough so that you have to *fight* to get it without Windows), and *force* you to pay for it, then sue the toaster companies for violating patents on their software!
