FT.com / Home UK - Microsoft critic received $9.75m after antitrust settlement


Wow... seems even the most ardent anti-Microsoft campaigners have their price. Albeit quite a high one - I think most people woud be tempted by such a sum.

One slashdotter quoted the anecdote:-


Man walks up to beautiful lady and asks her "Would you sleep with me for a million dollars?"


The woman replies "Why, of course."


So the man says "Would you sleep with me for one dollar?"


To which the woman replies"What sort of a woman do you think I am!", and slaps the guy in the face.


The man, unfazed, says "I think we've established that. We're just haggling over price".
