Also, perhaps Microsoft put that

were getting, not because "Bill Gates is greedy".

This was a theory, not an interpretation.

Microsoft isn't charging for support calls regarding the worm & patching 
problems.  Its free to anybody who calls.

I was not talking about the worm, this was in regards to an automatic
deactivation/activation system based on patches applied, that can and
will break due to improper filtering resulting in a higher call rate
to Microsoft.
