Donate 30 seconds, and Microsoft will donate to charity

If you can spare 30 seconds of your time (and another minute to install the Silverlight plugin - there had to be a catch!), Microsoft will donate one dollar to the The Smith Family, a charity that supports disadvantaged Australian children. At the time of this writing, donations are up to $1068, but Microsoft may donate up to $100,000.

All you need to do is head on over to this page and listen to a 9 year old describe what it's like to use Microsoft Office, and Microsoft will make the donation. Too easy.

There's no way what the kid says are "his own words". None the less, I watched it just for the charity aspect and I guess everyone should.

...and the catch is that you have to install Silverlight?

I have recently made the switch from Microsoft to Linux and I have never been happier. Screw Microsoft. There is no need to be a slave to their poorly created, poorly secured, poorly updated software. I am not bitter.

Microsoft Donates to charity but the catch is you have to sit there and listen to their propaganda about how great they think they are.
