any reason he should employ actual Americans workers.
As the following news story explains, Bill Gates wants
to do away with all limits on H1B visas, which are the
primary visa used in the high tech industry. This would
leads to a jump in the unemployment rate, destroy careers,
and would lead to a rush to import cheap workers which
would certainly put national security at greater risk.

Given Microsoft's business practices and history, is this any surprise?

The only thing they give a shit about is their bottom line, and that
it.  Nothing else matters.  And they will do anything to achieve that.
No matter what the cost to everything around them.

That's capitalism, the American way. Whether or not they want to admit it, many Linux advocates are promoting a form of Kropotkin-style anarchism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Kropotkin). I'm not afraid to admit it.

"In anarcho-communism, profit no longer exists. Not only that, but goods are given away as gifts in the certainty that others will also give products back (in an industrial setting, this would occur between worker syndicates as well as between individuals). If one syndicate does not share their products, they will not receive resources from other syndicates, making it in their best interest to share."
