That has always been on Micro$oft's evil little mind. Now you see why so many people still run XP. Unfortunately, it is just a question of time now.

Dissent and Dead both begin with a D, so does Danger.

Unfortunately, it is just a question of time now.

A person who stands in front of a charging elephant gets trampled for his/her stupidity.

Why can't you sign the agreement? Is it because they will get your email? If so, use my email instead: [removed by administrator]

I have signed many such petitions when I felt there was a reasonable chance of victory. Then I am willing to take some risk. There can be no victory in this case. Bill represents an extremely powerful group of people. They control the wealth, resources and armies of the world. He has been doing precisely what that petition states since Windows 95. We have already lost the war, sign if your conscience demands.
