YOUR leading articles of 4 March display a surprising contrast in the treatment of Bill Gates and Rupert Murdoch. Apparently Gates is "an international treasure", while Murdoch is "an agent of moral debilitation".

Many would not see the distinction. As one familiar with software other than that of Microsoft, I avoid using its products to the same extent that I boycott the emanations of News International. Gates and Murdoch in their attitudes to competition are two sides of the same coin.
