No love for Microsoft

There is no shortage of bad press about Microsoft, how they abused their monopoly position, how they force unfavorable contract or predatory pricing terms on their customers etc… well, we came across a great personal example of a pissed off company – we were buying tickets for the Austin Wine Festival and got the following message when we hit submit:

“Since Microsoft has decided for you that you don’t need to receive an order confirmation from us unless we pay a couple thousand dollars, we politely request that you use a non-Hotmail email address”

I love it! You rarely see such spite so openly expressed… stick it to the man!!
