Why don't you try reading the posts instead of making up your own brand of
I'm not defending Microsoft at all and in fact I've said several times the
Yahoo deal is not a good thing.
Find a post where I am defending Microsoft.
The problem is you Linux zealots consider criticisms of Linux, and pure
facts to be defending Microsoft.
How is the fact that Linux is free and STILL can't make a dent in the
desktop market, Microsoft's fault?
How is the fact that Open Office is free, even for Windows, yet people
would rather purchase MSOffice?
Why hasn't Open Office taken over MSOffice?
These things are free for goodness sakes.
You and your girlfriend's Roy Schestowitz and Mark Kent need to drop the
conspiracy theories and conecntrate on why something that is free can't
seem to gain desktop market share.
