That has got to be one of the dumbest ideas I have heard in the tech world since
divx (the format, not the codec).
How about they include, in the baggie (cuz they'll probably not afford the
benefit of an actual box or CD case), a sticker (since they couldn't possibly
afford them a pin or button) that says "hi, microsoft realized I'm part of the
international digital divide and figured this ghetto version of their OS will
make me feel like I can run with the big boys"
I heard Honda might start a 3 wheeled, one door, 3 passenger, 25HP car program
for poor people to buy cars... they can pay for the 4th wheel and mroe
horsepower after they "outgrow" the first one.
