Heh. Only moments ago I caught Rob "Shill" Enderle /paying/ for a press
release that spread more FUD about anti-Linux litigation. This indicates
that no longer is he able to have his 'articles' (lies) submitted to the
press, so he just pays (probably Microsoft's money) to have his stuff
injected to the PR wires. Recently he did the same things to warn Dell about
these 'cheap' Linux users.
