    Wow, I just did a conversion on the Turkish Lira rate. If a Turkish company were to sue M$ for 8.7 million USD, the conversion would come out to 11,649,300,000,000 TL. That is a mind numbing number. So that would be, what, eleven quadrillion, six hundred and forty nine trillion, three hundred billion Turkish Lira. Sheesh.

    why would he? 8.7M is nothing if you've got over 50B.

    if microsoft isn't affraid of a 600M fine from the EU i seriously doubt that this will scare them. Your logic may vary from mine of course, but if so, i would really like to know in what way this should scare microsoft. Unless a shitload of companies start doing this (in which case microsoft will just let these cases go on and on infinitely until all those companies just give up or go out of business because they've got too many legal bills) the people at microsoft will not lose any sleep over this.

    Currently, M$ have 40 Billions dollars in the bank. Yeap, that's 40,000 Millions dollars. So, is 7.8 Million a huge chunk?

    Probably the Turkish Lira. I think that the Italian Lira rate is in the thousands to the dollar.
