Just like to point out that the story actually says, "A $1 million
software grant from Microsoft Corp. helped fund the center". There's a
big difference between giving them $1m and giving them $1m in "donated
software from MS". Would be interesting to know if there are any terms
attached. Does St. Anthony's really have enough computers to run $1m of
MS software on it, or does this mean they're donating some of the
software to individuals or organizations outside of St. Anthony's?

Cheers, Tom
