Now 'green software'

Even software is trying to go green now! I downloaded the Notepad++ editor today and was reading the 'About' page on its site, http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/uk/site.htm. Here's what I found there:
" By optimizing as many routines as possible without losing user friendliness, Notepad++ is trying to reduce the world carbon dioxide emissions. When using less CPU power, the PC can throttle down and reduce power consumption, resulting in a greener environment."
I know, its a geeky way of saying things but I think all the author of the software really wanted to say was that he is concerned. If we can show such a concern in every little (of big) thing that we do, it would make a lot of difference in bringing down the global temperatures and improving conditions for the generations to follow.

hmmm... i hope with all the tata BS, this one is genuine... the fact that there are people (like you and me) are happy to see these things in a software, is a blessing in disguise for these corporations, who can sell their "unique" products by either really being unique or just adding a paragraph in the 'about us' text...

Steps like these should be taken for a Green Future!!!

Why just a software, hardwares can too contribute... instead of being costly, they should be sold with discounts.
