[News] Microsoft Still the 'Anti-Linux Company'

Hash: SHA1

Microsoft tried to be Open but failed. Miserably.

| In a nutshell, they are saying that they will not sue "hobbyist FOSS users 
| and developers" but they will sue FOSS distributors and enterprise end-users 
| who fail to obtain a patent license from Microsoft. This is no bogey man. Its 
| quite clear in the announcement, and the BSA is pretty active in Malaysia, 
| not hesitating in sueing end user companies.    
| [...]
| Here was a golden chance for Microsoft to gain some precious goodwill with 
| the Open Source Community. Instead they botched it up just like they did 
| before, again and again, cementing their reputation as the biggest and 
| baddest anti-FOSS company in existence today.   
| How many other companies out there have such a anti-FOSS policies? Which
company can be so unfriendly to their end users who prefer more choice? Why
threaten when you should coax? 


...Good thoughts there which explain why Linux users are rightly 'obssessed'
with that who schemes to 'f***ing kill' them. The "obssessed" and "Microsoft
hater" labels are being used to urge people to stop watching and then be
victimised, raped.

| The efforts of Microsoft to pressure the Linux community over alleged and

Microsoft, the art of Corporate Terrorism.

| Microsoft, no longer the technological leader in the Computer Desktop
| market, is taking on a terrorist role in its attempt remain in power
| at all costs. (see the link to the CNN story below)
| The tactic is intended to frighten current, and would be, free 
| software users away from products that Microsoft just can't compete
| with. It's not a new tactic, but for the first time desperation is
| beginning to show.


Convicted Monopolist Terrorizes Software Industry

| That headline is designed to grab your attention. Sensationalistic as
| it may be, it also happens to be true, if what you mean by 'terrorize'
| is to provoke fear.
| If you've been following the presidential race in the United States,
| you know the present crop of candidates have been exploiting the fear
| of the American people as they never have before in the history of
| the country.
