    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.

    Cheers

    He could probably pick that much out of the sofa cushions in his living room. It is such an inconsequential amount to M$. I would tend to believe that it will cost more to pay the lawyers than its worth in settlement.

    Some knows it too well and that's why they do it.

    Sad but true. That's how M$ recently settled with Sun.

    not bad considering they have 53B in the bank. 8.7B is a decent sized chunk
