    Good for Microsoft.

    Although we must remember that despite this generous gesture Microsoft is a multi-billion dollar industry which has faced controversy in the past for making financial contribution to homophobic candidates and constituencies.

    That’s the nature of the massive multinationals – build some good PR by supporting 1 side of 1 issue but make a similar contribution to the opposite side elsewhere.

    They are covering their bases. The homophobes are as important as the gay people to Microsoft’s profits after all.

    Nevertheless in this instance I think they are doing good.

    Microsoft made equally generous campaign contributions to the Democrat and Republican campaign in the last US presidential election.

  3. Have they really donated?
    There hasn’t been a website set up to boycott Microsoft in America yet

  4. Good for them. To be fair its not like any homophobic’s will be clever enough to go buy a Mac anyway.

    Meh, I’m still gonna use Ubuntu.
