Hmmmmm ... sacrifice your rights, freedom, and the availability of good software - just to make a few dollars?

I'm not sacrificing my rights etc. I plan to stick with all the stuff I currently use and avoid the Microsnot stuff wherever possible. Indeed if you search back you'll see that I have often posted articles critical of Microsnot.

But Microsoft looks like it will succeed with Hailstorm and friends no matter what I do so I might as well make money on the deal. There's no point in being poor as well as deficient in rights, freedoms etc.

WHy choose the most corrupt methods? They might work in the short-term, but it will lead to massive retaliation.

Like the DoJ case? yeah massive retaliation
