In 1999, groups of open source software users staged an international protest against Microsoft. They demanded a refund for something they didn't want, but were forced to pay for: Microsoft Windows 98. Today's video examines one of these protests, which occurred in California's Silicon Valley, and the battle that these users fought to get their money back.
