What Windows XP really costs

Also via bOING bOING, a table of software license fees in terms of earning power, for various countries. Did you know that it takes the average Burundian more than five and a half years to earn enough to buy a copy of Windows XP and MS Office, whereas it takes the average Luxembourgian less than a week, and the average American slightly longer than that?

I'm surprised that the average Burundi is buying a copy of Xp at all, let alone every 5 1/2 years.
