I have no love for Microsoft, even less for the US DOJ. I would
like to see Gates sue the DOJ for $1 million a day for every day
they don't adhere to the Microsoft software licensing and
fine them to the fullest extent of the law for every pirated
piece of software or OS they have on their computers.

Knock down Institution fights are cool.
