The problem with this is, WHY ARE YOU STILL USING XP? If your argument is underpowered PC, get a Linux distro. Otherwise, if you need Windows, and have a capable PC (which is not hard, unless your PC is like 2 decades old), upgrade to Windows 7. By now, XP is already far behind the technological curve.
Your other arguments are sound, but a decade is a really long lifetime for an OS.
Are you talking about the current eBook bundle? I don't really see it being as financially successful as the other ones, because, it's a ebook bundle. And you can't expect everyone that bought the game bundles to get the book bundle too. Actually, I would say that at $940k at the time of posting, it's already passed the "profitable" level.
...now that I see it, Xkcd Volume 0 is nice. But kinda failing to see the value in getting an electronic copy of an eBook. But then again, some of the strips are just too large for physical print books. And I don't know if it's the same for the book, but the title-texts have too small of a font in the demo.
(not saying I'm against for-sale copies of webcomics, just that physical prints hold much more value for them)
And 253: Techdirt's SOPA article- FUCKING AGAIN!
#255: An anime discussion forum (at least, I don't see it as being very useful).
The last two lines are gold:
"I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described in all notifications submitted through the Program as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law."
"The information in all notifications submitted through the Program will be accurate, and I swear, under penalty of perjury, that with respect to those notifications, I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed."
Accurate my arse.
