Ummm . . . he doesn't really provide much evidence for a lot of his "facts,"
does he?

This one seems to be the one that most needs some supporting information.  I
find it hard to believe that Microsoft is the "biggest" lobbyist, especially
considering how slow they were to even start getting involved in lobbying.

I'm not saying that he's wrong or that he's right, but I need evidence one way
or the other.  Otherwise, it seems like blind Microsoft-bashing.
