Microsoft before the earthquake

Author: JT Smith

Linuxuser.co.uk has an analysis of the recent Microsoft campaign against Open Source and Free Software. "The situation for Microsoft is growing serious. Increasingly hyperbolic rhetoric is not by itself a good public
relations strategy. In the weeks preceding the release of an opinion by the United States Court of Appeals in
Washington on Microsoft's appeal of the order breaking it up for antitrust violations, aggressive and violent
rhetoric directed against a competitor has some serious costs, to say nothing of what Microsoft loses by
appearing ridiculous."
