I guess this was meant for me among others. A couple of comments: (a) I have
no desire to change any university reliance or use of Windows. (b) As far as
I can tell, Windows software costs nothing, or very little to universities -
MS is happy to make such donations. (c) My personal rules for donations are:

(i) Donations? Make sure the donor is not giving you a present you will have
to feed and clean after.
(ii) Unsolicited donations? Exercise great caution.
(iii) Unsolicited software donations? Exercise greater caution. See if the
donor is willing to put money where their words are.
