It seems like the Canadian government has offered Microsoft to move to Vancouver... And offered them preferential treatment http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif
If I were them I guess I'd rather move than break up http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/tongue.gif

hehe I think I would too. Just think about how much it would cost to move to Canada. But think how much it would cost to break up. Oh well either way I am sure Bill Gates will find some way to make more money. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Word around here is that it was just an analyst trying to get his name in the news...but the local politicians ALSO said they could make life "comfortable" for MS if they did move up here. And you'd be surprised how little it would take to haul Camp MS up here...buy a huge tract of land in the boonies, turn it into a small city like they've done with Redmond, and *poof*, you have a new economy, complete with free reign to monopolize. Especially with free trade et al, it wouldn't be as drastic as one might think. The only thing is that Ms would have to be sure the US gov wouldn't find a way to curtail their exports or something, but then again, the Canadian government would raise blue bloody murder if they tried that...

i do hope that microsoft finds a way around all of this break-up talk, and this sounds like just the way. I'd be happy to see MS fare so well from this deal...but then America would lose a lot of tax crap, but oh well. hen America eventually makes canada yet another colony, we'll just get it all back. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/tongue.gif
