Microsoft fears a boycott; may get one anyway

I presume that most of you are aware of Microsoft's backtracking on its support for a Washington State antidiscrimination bill that would include gays. The story being passed around is that the management caved in to threats of a boycott from the Religious Right.

Today John Aravosis of AmericaBlog reveals that Microsoft has Ralph Reed on a $20,000 a month retainer. What could they have been thinking? Are they planning to expand into gambling and shut down some Native American casinos?

I have never been a fan of Microsoft, but I promise you this—my next computer will be running Linux.

And by the way, if you're still using Internet Explorer, please try FireFox. You won't be sorry you did. You can get it here.
