Playing hardball with Microsoft

Author: JT Smith

They're mad over at Linux Planet: "There's been no lack of outrage in the Linux and open source arenas lately over Microsoft's actions, particularly some of Ji m Allchin's recent
statements regarding the "threat" of open source or GPL'd software or whatever it was he was really talking about. Every time I see the Linux and
open/free source supporters getting all huffed up about this incident or Microsoft's ongoing FUD war against Linux, I have to laugh. Not because
it's just so much silliness from Microsoft (which it is), but because it doesn't even scratch the surface of what they're capable of and routinely do.
Microsoft is not only far better at this game than you imagine, they're far better at it than you can imagine."
