Read the blog

Go read the blog, elReg even linked it for you despite totally misrepresenting it. The guy makes no complaint. It's a simple statement of facts for the education of others. There is no frowning, or complaining about Amazon's actions within it.

For reference, I use Win7+8 and don't have any skin in the arguement.

Re: 100 teachers over 3 years?
