Microsoft support of Ukraine

Microsoft reports it has spent $239 million on financial and technical support of Ukraine and has been an important part of a coalition of tech companies, the NSA and other gov’t agencies, and Ukrainian hackers to stymie Russian efforts to sabotage Ukraine’s “cyber” assets, according to this op-ed in WaPo:

Here is a link to a referenced Microsoft report on “an overview of Russia’s cyberattack activity in Ukraine”:

I’ve frequently had bones to pick, off and on, with Microsoft since my first Macintosh in April 1984, but I gotta say, given the totally white-hat nature of Microsoft’s activities with Ukraine with no obvious immediate payoff, I’m strongly inclined to go ahead and renew my rental contract for their software for another year.
