Lets give Microsoft a pass. Takes major techballs to make a major contribution like that Methinks that the majority of Microsofters are for us. There could be some homophobic asshats in the sector which decides which software to make accesible to whom who decide to make some apps difficult to use
“no escaping its Office suite of software”
Um… Open Office, anyone? Actually paying for that overpriced software is shockingly stupid when you can get almost the exact same thing online for free. Downloading Open Office instead of buying Microsoft Office will save you enough dough to practically buy another laptop or netbook ;)
Actually being so LGBT-critical of Microsoft may be a tiny bit unwarranted. The company has the highest-ranking transgendered executive of ANY Fortune 500 company, Megan Wallent. She’s also very well-respected in the tech community.
Check out Megan’s blog:
Bill Gates is so closet…seriously…
Just a reminder that Microsoft in a giant marketing machine, nothing more. They often had to defend themselves in courts around the world against accusations of mobbing etc. by gay employees.
This is one of the last ones I’ve seen, Jamie Durrant:
There are many more. Most of them settled out of court.
Not sure what the reference is to Microsoft not wanting gays to use its gaming products, but the $100,000 corporate donation from Microsoft goes on top of $100,000 from Bill Gates and another $100,000 from Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer.
That’s $300,000 reasons to to believe Microsoft is supportive.
Is it enough? It’s never enough until there is EQUALITY. But in the interim 1/3 of a Million $$$ will buy a lot of ads to defeat the upcoming referendum vote.
