Amazon yanks ‘Gates” and ‘Torvalds’ reviews


Author: JT Smith

From CNet: “Microsoft founder Bill Gates praising a version of Linux. Linux creator
Linus Torvalds panning it. Have both of them gone mad?

Probably not.

Instead, in what appeared to be a humorous case of identity theft, reviews bearing the tech titans’
names were posted on’s United Kingdom e-tail site. As of Friday morning PDT, the
reviews appeared to have been taken down.”
