The correct route would be for brainless government thugs to stay out of
things they don't understand. They need do absolutely nothing because we
already have open source code, it's called Linux. I don't know at the end of
the day if the Windows approach or the Linux approach will produce better
software and neither do you, so try both. I do know that violence or its threat
(a good definition of government) should not be used to hobble either camp,
let them compete in the market of ideas and may the best method win.

Anyway I'll tell you one thing for sure, I'd much, much, rather have Bill Gates
write my computer code than Janet Reno.
