I got my settlement check: Microsoft-Minnesota

It's little compensation for suffering beneath the Microsoft Monopoly, but my Microsoft Minnesota Class Action Settlement check came in. I'd submitted the receipt for my G5 iMac and I received $106 back [1]. I'll put it towards Aperture 1.1 if Apple is able to get that thing working, otherwise Elements 4.0.

At least we got cash, some states settled for Microsoft software vouchers. That would be an insult of the first order.

[1] The theory is that Microsoft's illegally earned monopoly affected the cost of all software and hardware, not just their own products. That's what monopolies do.
