The Chronicles Of Google-DoubleClick

They have a strangle-hold on technology unlike any other, locking up
productivity, innovation, and freedom-based computing on their way to a
place called Windowsverse: their Promised Land, a litigious minefield of
vapourware, alleged Patent violations, and fabricated Intellectual
Property claims. "Microsoft" they're called. And if they cannot
convert you, they will kill you.

Leading them, the Lord Ballmer. He alone has made a pilgrimage to the
Gates of the Windowsverse, and returned a different being ---
closed-source, proprietary; half alive and half . . . something else.

If we are to survive, a new balance must be found. In normal times,
such evil would be fought by good. But in times like these, it should
be fought by another kind of evil: Google-DoubleClick.
