It is so welcome to see people with this attitude.  IMHO, we really do need
to send money into FOSS business networks, and not the Microsoft business

The best way to make sure that Microsoft is not getting any revenue is to

Gal of Techcollective.com; Earl Malmrose of Zareason.com; and Steve Hargadon
of TechnologyRescue.com.
