Sadly no. With a combined population of 310 million and a cost of say $10
per delivery that would be a mere $3.1 billion. In fact, some people live
together, so the real figure could be less than half of that.

Does this mean though that us Europeans don't matter? (If anyone from
Microsoft is reading this, prove me wrong by mailing the posters!)

I agree with Georgi though, it does look odd, especially with the
maintenance notice.
