'SP3 will also remove Solitaire and Minesweeper to ensure it catches the attention of CEOs around the world. '

Sounded like horse *feces* all the way through, then graduated to bull*feces* by the end.

Phew....

TFT was referring to the article being satire, EAGLE.  I think.

I caught these links next to the article as well:

I believe the Clippy one.  Never trusted that bastage.

This one might also be true: "Microsoft Purchases Evil From Satan"

Those links are at least as believable as the Beeb.

$2.7 billion?

I'd have thought $3 billion, at least.
