Self negating in it's entirety, but I think I know what you are trying to say. I am a licensed automobile dealer in two states. While I have made a significant profit on some deals, I do not rip off anybody. Dollar for dollar, I make a much larger margin on custom built computers.

So, because I don't agree with you and because I don't watch Fox News, that automatically makes me a liberal?
Some people really shouldn't voice their opinions when they state fantasies as facts. Or even twisting fiction to make it a fact.
Really sad
1: the previous thread got locked because a newbie highjacked it and started up garbage

2: I'm not pointing fingers at ANYONE! The MAJORITY of liberals bring up the "Hate FOX News/FOX ANYTHING To Be Cool on the Block" argument.

Good idea of Microsoft giving some sort of rebate for older software but if it is not pat of an overall equipment exchange/upgrade then the new software is basically useless on all the thousands of PCs still running win95 or WinME etc.
Both the PC manufactures and Microsoft would of course have to work together on something like this. The key is convincing the average Joe to upgrade...period.

Something like a rebate system for electronics would be ideal but not for automobiles. But I do like the idea of PC companies offering discounts for every PC traded in towards a new PC to keep these stuff outta junkyards and maybe help reduce cost of future hardware products, since the material in older computers are being recycled. That'll help lots of businesses.
