明報是微軟的機關報?

自從基督右派天天在號稱公信第一的明報賣宗教/政治廣告後,基右的文章便常常被編緝青睞,基右的冒起不和明報無關;
後來明報報導微軟出新的作業系統時,用上無疑是為微軟促銷的「勢掀換腦潮」,我於是拿Win-XP滯銷及微軟內置DRM系統令用家怨聲戴道的外國報導來投訴它立場不公正;
上星期反基鬥士鍾善因把六x四屠殺的真相偽裝成色情短片以BT形式上載到中共,我很奇怪報紙相中的電腦是用微軟的作業系統,因為鍾善因一向是用Ubuntu,才知道原來新聞並沒有反映實況,相片是記者自己的電腦,難道是記者就是鍾善因,自己報導自己?還是,因為微軟是明報的大廣告客戶,如此的正面宣傳當然不可能少了微軟一份,於是一般讀者把微軟作業系統當成為改善中共國人權的工具,而不是名不經傳的Linux。當然,更不要提微軟的搜索引擎把自由、民主、六x四、車輪功等敏感名詞列成關鍵字,令中共國人看不到事情的真相,更不要提因為微軟非開放源碼軟件,它隨時可以和中共國合作出中共國版,用DRM的原理令用家一言一行都不可越雷池半步,否則直接通知網警,公安半晚破門而入,網民死了也不知發生什麼事。

Mingpao owned by Microsoft?
As an atheist, I notice something that rightly qualify for supernatural explanation: After Christian Right's Religiously political advertisement appears in it, then the standard of accepting letters from writer drops specifically for those clearly affiliate with Christian Right groups like Society of Truth and Light, Sex Culture Society....etc. Of so many phenomenas that Christian Right love to 'mistaken' correlation as causation, it would exclude the rise of Christian Right and appearance of Christian Right 'column' in MingPao which is generally regard as a newspaper for Intellectuals.
Now, how I would be surprised that when MingPao reporting an Atheist Activist who joined me in both 2.15 and 7.1 demonstration, the reporter photograph only his own computer running Window-XP but not my friends' computer which is running Linux? Specifically, he was running Ubuntu on his Eee PC when he was uploading the news clips, newspaper cutting about June 4 massacre. Since that would put this popular Linux distribution in a favorable light, how could MingPao not thought of 'protecting the reputation' of Microsoft?
It similarly happened when Microsoft just release the poorly received Window-XP which MingPao use the title 'That would cause massive Dumping of old hardware'. Given the news of issue of DRM and privacy concerns never appears in MingPao(or any newspaper in HK), no wonder MingPao can make such a natural inference: When Microsoft release an Operating System ,every computer own MUST wanting it badly more than citizen demanding Universal Suffrage in HKSAR?
Certainly, this 'intellectual' newspaper would also conveniently forgot that given the nature of closed source of any of commercial Operating System and the precedent of Microsoft search engine censor 'Democracy, Liberty, June 4' in China domain, Microsoft could have develop a DRMed version of Operating System which including components that is silently collect the user's behavior on the Internet, and then alert the Public Security Department in Beijing. Netizen who just post an anonymous satirical comment about the rule of Communist Party would be detained in the midnight and executed without anyone notice. That is what Mingpao think what intellectual in HKSAR shouldn't know.
