"Sarkozy made his declaration as he adorned Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer with the Legion D'Honneur, a knightly order originated by Napoleon. The beast of Redmond can now count himself amongst the greats such as Walt Disney, uber cook Julia Child, and of course actor and auteur, Jerry Lewis."
French police have dumped Windows. The EU has fined Microsoft something over a billion dollars and put restrictions on Windows. Yes. Microsoft/Ballmer are highly admired by farting in their general direction.
