What would I do with a PC? Personally, I'm waiting for Samsung to
start flooding VARs with dual and quad Alpha 21264 motherboards priced
within an inch of anti-dumping regulations. =:-)

Is it possible that you actually believe a "Microsoft Research
Fellowship" is somehow desirable?

That words like "research" or "qualify" actually mean something in
this context?

That I could possibly want to "get in"?

Such smarmy, misplaced smugness disgusts me.
