This is the second case in the last few months where MS sued someone then ended up putting out money. The first was MikeRowesoft.com where they ended up setting the kid up with A+ certification, a computer, softeware, etc.

Hell, I think Iam going to change one of my sites to like Windells.com or something like that. That way I can get MS and Dell suing me, then pay me out something to change the name.

Wow, I hope MS sues me too. ;)
Rights are never important until you don't have them.

I'm just a happy IBM user (Idiots Built Me - Idiots Buy Me) :scratchhead:
