I mention this kind of thing on a Linux list because most peoples'
perceptions of what a computer IS are so heavily influence by
Microsoft software, so it impacts us all -- and MS has become an
anchor, dragging all computer users to the briny depths of Trojans,
spyware, and wasted computer power...

"Case in point: Microsoft Office 2007 which, when deployed on Windows
Vista, consumes over 12x as much memory and nearly 3x as much
processing power as the version that graced PCs just 7 short years ago
(Office 2000)."
