Subject: Great book
The book is great, but Artboyf is right, it IS corporate graffiti. Microsoft could put the notice on one page (or preferably none). Having a lot of money from the sale of overpriced bloatware doesn't entitle MSFT to imprint itself on everything.
At the bottom of every page is says "Digitized by Microsoft". What is the problem. They have a moral right.All big cos should encourage this activity.
Considering the cost of doing these scans and the possible loss of books being preserved, it is an extremly small price to pay to have Microsoft's name in small print on the pages. They contribute 1000's of book that would not be here otherwise and with FAR better scans than any other scanning program like Google's.
The book itself is very good though.
Subject: This would be enjoyable, but...
It has corporate vandalism on every page. At the bottom of every page is says "Digitized by Microsoft." It's criminal.
