Microsoft requested yesterday some $20 Giga bits in bailout funds from the IMF, claiming that Linux adoption has hampered their plans for economies of scale. The cost of software duplication is too costly. The low adoption rates for Vista, the ensuing ad campaign trying to convince people that they really do like Vista, and the increased need for development resources to rush Windows 7 to market to make people forget about Vista have necessitated the monies.
In related news, Steve Ballmer will personally guarantied no more Virus and Worms in Windows and will allow Security Professionals to view Microsoft's OS code before it gets installed on your computer. Just like Steve Jobs has done for Apple's Snow Leapord.
