In March, 2001, Competitive Enterprise Institute received a donation of $48,860 dollars of PROPRIETARY software products -- no donor is identified, but there is only one entity in the world capable of donating NON-TRANSFERABLE USER LICENCES: Microsoft.

Did this payoff to CEI influence them to do what Alexis de SMOKEville Institution did -- attack open source and Linux? See for yourself what webpages reside on those donated servers...
