So, as Microsoft continues to attack free software, they really do make some ridiculous statements from time to time. Consider this from some MS clown:

But Paulo Ferreira, the platform strategy manager at Microsoft South Africa, said: "There is no such thing as free software. Nobody develops software for charity."

I, (and millions of others) beg to differ. Having developed software for charity, it's evident to me that MS, despite its propaganda campaigns about its so-called 'charity' (which harms people!), continues to brainwash the ignorant.

And then there is the disturbing trend of unaccountable philanthrocapitalism invading the education system.
