    So yeah as the tiitle says ... you can offcially stop calling them M$

    i still think it was horrible to begin with, but what ever.....

    Engaget: Microsoft to offer discounted hardware, software to students from low-income families -- Engadget

    MS: Shape the Future

    Something you will NEVER see From Apple, Google and RIM

    your sort of right , its kind of a way to get the most WINDOWS device into consumer`s hands to complete the ECOSYSTEM ... witch will push people to stick with MS instead of mixing up the hardware MS/Apple/Android..

    That's cuz Apple doesn't need to give away their hardware. Macs outsell PCs by a factor of 8-2 on college campuses nowadays. Bunch of brainwashed iPhone users if you ask me.... :P
    But this is a very cool program. I have a niece that might actually be able to benefit from it. Just sent this to her parents, thanks for sharing!

    They wasn't called M$ because they wasn't a charitable company. They got that name from those who view MS anticompetitive tactics were used to kill other companies to improve/maintain their market share and profits.
