They sent Ken Brown after Linus
spreading uncertainty far and wide,
Standards they extend and extinguish,
while pretending to be on our side
Even the European Union
Thinks that Microsoft’s gone insane
“Their salesdroids are hindering competition,
“It must be the free Talking Rain!”
But maybe I’m being too hard on Scoble,
And unfair to Microsoft too.
I like my Internet Keyboard Pro
The FTEs are just human, true
They’re not all living rich on Mercer Island,
Although they’re smart and clever
No one can challenge their work ethic,
Plus they made Flight Simulator
Just open your checkbook,
Just click “I accept”,
Let them control your music
Let your consumer choice be forfeit.
But I can tolerate the constant security exploits
I can take the lousy CSS support in IE
But there is one thing I cannot forgive nor forget…
And that’s the delay of Halo for the PC.
Of course I don’t hate Scoble. How can you hate someone you’ve never met? As for Microsoft, they do good things and bad things. However, I wish they did more good things.
