Nuke Redmond!

Oh, quite complaining!.

Just because YOU didn't have the smarts or the imagination and certainly
lacked the application and diligence to build a successful business like
Gates and his pals did doesn't mean you can sit, idly regurgitating the same
unconsidered rubbish every time you're short a buck or two. If you con't
like what Gates has done or how he's done it, then do better. Don't whine.
Get out there and do it! Either that or shut up and suffer the much
deserved consequence of your own inaction.
