Here's a great example of all the bloody-minded bigotry and bile that wells up whenever Charles sets eyes on the word Europe. His hatred of Europeans - their ideas, their views, their actions - blinds him to such basic facts that he really makes a fool of himself:
The European Union is very jealous of Microsoft’s success: EU fines Microsoft record $1.3B.
That’s B as in Billion. Maybe the EU should put all that rarefied brainpower of theirs to work and write their own Intel-based operating system and GUI, instead of forcing Microsoft to give away trade secrets to second rate European companies.
Shudder. For one dark second, I imagined what an OS designed by the EU might look like. (link)
First of all it might be worth pointing out why we're talking billions: because the U.S. dollar has falled dramatically under the reign of George Bush II, so that $1.3bn is now the equivalent of 850 million Euros.
Second, it wasn't a European company that complained about Microsoft to the Commission. It was Sun Microsystems Inc., based in Silicon Valley, USA.
Third, as for Europeans writing their own operating systems, CJ might like to consider that one the most successful OS's of recent years is Linux, originally written by a Finn (with lots of input from all over the world, including the US).
Just goes to show that CJ is an idiot even when he's not complaining about Muslims.
