I’m a fan of MS and I will be using alternatives, like Open office.
However, when the browser options are even worse (google, just as much in the tank. FF, big and bloated), I’m not really sure there’s a good alternative to IE that isn’t even more in gay agenda tank than Microsoft.

To be fair to Google, they were founded by screaming liberals. They weren’t hijacked by gays. Gays were invited aboard from the word go. With Google it really is WYSIWYG.
Microsoft with its stodgier business image seems more of a sacrilege for having gone to the, er, “dogs.”

Interesting that "big and bloated" Firefox 7.01 runs just fine on my antique Celeron 400 laptop with 256 mb. About 110 meg free after starting FF.

I've tried to use Open Office, and my experience has always been that, it's second best and apparently will always be second best. The price can't be beat.
However, pertaining to using Microsoft software, there is no reason to use Microsoft software all the time, and perhaps certain we can split the types of software that we do use to include several makes and vendors. So, maybe we don't have to used IE and Opera might be a good alternative (I will never trust Google, and thus, Chrome is out of the question). We also don't have to use Hotmail, and Yahoo mail can be a good substitute. All we need to do is to use as few MS applications as possible, as long as there are adequate alternatives.
The problem with this idea is that, the vast majority of people won't be familiar with the DOMA issue, or won't care about the issue, since, to most, it's not something that affects them directly. To them, it's always somebody else's problem, although they are directly and indirectly affected by any regulations which affect businesses and increase the cost of goods and services, and changes the ethical and moral and religious and cultural rules which have guided societies since forever.
