Summary: The real purpose of the Gates family trip to Spain is finally made public
The predictions are now confirmed. To Bill Gates, a major lobbyist these days [1, 2, 3, 4], the whole charity gig [1, 2, 3] is a convenient excuse and a tool for political power struggles. He uses that power to ensure that countries sell their entire population and public sector to Microsoft. With it, the commercial sector must follow (Microsoft ensures interoperability is a no-go).
The excuse of Bill G. visiting Mr.Zapatero was collaboration with the developing world under the disguise of the Gates Foundation.
Seems Mrs. Rosa Garcia, former Microsoft CEO for Spain and current person in charge for the whole EMEA region of Microsoft business had to “call the cavalry” in order to ensure GNU/Linux would be banished from Spanish educational system.
It seems clear that the “high diplomacy game” visit of William Henry Gates III has nothing to do with curing malaria and its real aim is to ensure GNU/Linux has no place in the recent plan to bring netbooks to Spanish schoolchildren.
Several regions in Spain have developed successful programs with GNU/Linux, but Microsoft wants to push the only one that has used an All-Microsoft (including the failed Tablet-PC concept) approach in the Aragon region in order to sabotage GNU/Linux educational initiatives already working in many other regions of the country like Extremadura, Andalusia, Madrid, Catalonia and Valencia.
So, the purpose of this trip turns out to be as many people expected. █
