Just for the record, that's a Monthy Python reference! What does mIRC have to do with it?! (Yeah, yeah, I looked it up, so now I know.)

How could you not stand Monty Python? Blasphemy!

On-Topic, that's a great step forward against Microsoft's seemingly monopolistic licenses. Hopefully this opens up more eyes and causes others to repeat what happened in Norway. Is it just me, or has Microsoft been falling apart (Since Vista's release)?

Great link, Tina! Thanks for posting it. It just goes to show that like most bullies, when confronted on a level playing field they will blink and yield. I hope others see this and follow their example.
