Yes.. Think about it.. Take a bunch of non-conformist geeks, get them drunk and let them roam the countryside. There are many benefits to Microsoft:
* Shows the 'enemy' as a bunch of isolationist, granola-crunching, rowdy-drunk mountainmen! Corporate types fear and loathe this sort and do not want to employ them. Average consumer doesn't want this 'type of guy' to write software that their teenage daughter might be using.
* Gives inebriated 'enemy' improved odds of getting out of the gene pool. Have you ever tried to walk up a flight of sairs when drunk off your arse on a good lambic? Now add to it a bunch of other people hanging on you for balance, while you're all running from bears and boars on the side of a forested mountain, racing towards a cliff.
* Provides funny hidden camera footage and a slew of 'lemming' jokes to boost morale in Redmond, not to mention new (embraced and extended) nursery rhymes for the Gates' baby: "Three drunk hackers. See how they stumble!"
