Opera shows graceful, humorous response to Microsoft
Joe Barr writes "I think it is also very clear that the odds against Microsoft "behaving well and rising above corporate rivalry" are more than a trillion to one. Microsoft is exactly what is indicated by its behavior. Petty is as petty does. Duplicity and complete disregard for any common good are the hallmark traits of Bill Gates' firm. That was true in the early '90s, when Gates directed Microsoft's best and brightest to plant phony warning messages in Windows if it was detected to be running on DrDOS. It is still true today."
