  Microsoft Buys OpenOffice.org!

For an undisclosed sum reputed to be in the billions, Microsoft's Bill 
Gates has personally bought the leading open-source desktop project. 
Saying he "was sick and tired of open-source eating away at his 
profits," the world's richest man decided to put an end to the nuisance 
and simply buy OpenOffice.org. It will form part of a growing list of 
Microsoft acquisitions, including several erstwhile competitors, a 
considerable number of prominent politicians, and a few small governments.

The initially stunned OpenOffice.org community--a happy-go-lucky 
international band numbering in the hundreds of thousands--later turned 
to champagne to celebrate their newfound wealth. "Bless Bill!" one happy 
Torontonian exclaimed, bubbly in hand. "With all this money, I can beat 
Mark's time in orbit!"

Gates has assured all current OpenOffice.org users that their future 
migration path to Microsoft Office is guaranteed thanks to 
OpenOffice.org's faultless support of MS Office files formats. Users can 
further rest assured that the full functionality currently provided by 
OpenOffice.org 2.0 will be available in MS-Office 2020 - or possibly 2030.
