    Yes I agreed there with mark but MS isn't justified in the way it tries to bully competition. Everyone has a right to price their product as per thier beliefs of the value of the product.

    Not just that.. MS's aggresive monopolistic behaviour is what which irritates. It has concerns and tries to chuck out any emerging company or competition. These are dark years for the era of computing. What i'am really disgusted is that i have visual c++ to study in my 4th sem. God!! I wanted to follow esr's ways but this thing comes up. WTF. :cry:

    YES, they have.

    Afterall, It's not price that matters. Its the freedom that matters more for me.

    You should've the freedom to do anything with your product (read software) which you're paid for. What if your car manufacturer won't allow you to sell your car to another one.

    You can read This Essay about selling software.
