Hey, but the donator is UNISYS, the same company that has joined forces with
Microsoft and is developing a campaign saying Unix is inflexible and
expensive and everyone should switch to Windoze
Go to www.wehavethewayout.com and see what I mean.
Now, if reducing the digital divide means replacing Unix wiht M$, then it's a
NO NO for me. I would never like to reduce the divide this way!
Maybe because they believe Unix is *expensive*, then they want to help people
switch do the *cheaper* windoze, and by doing this they beleive they can help
I mean, I wouldn't accpet a donation from such a company ever !
Calling their enemies "terrorists" was an excuse for
the Nazis to do whatever violation of the human rights.
