After the revelation last week that Microsoft seems to be playing a role in funneling cash to SCO to attack Linux, it should be obvious to even the
most casual observer that Microsoft will do anything to try to halt Linux. This shouldn't surprise anyone, given Microsoft executives' prior conduct
track record of breaking the law, and the many books chronicling their unethical behavior over the last two decades. Routinely, we see Microsoft
intimidating companies that we interact with in the computer business who want to support desktop Linux. These partners and potential partners face
Microsoft's threats to withhold technical support, to withdraw market development funds, to file lawsuits, and more.
