Socially responsible - not Microsoft

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

The Parnassus fund is a "socially responsible" fund - no companies making money from alcohol, tobacco, etc. I was interested to read in Forbes that they don't buy Microsoft - because Microsoft is a bully to smaller competitors. Now they are making me feel guilty.. I buy Microsoft stock - not because I like their business tactics anymore than Parnassus does, but because I think of it as a win no matter what: if their dirty tactics cause them to continue to prosper, I'll be happy with my financial gains. On the other hand, if Linux etc. does push them back to less prominence, I'll be happy that the S.O.B's got what they deserve.
