    Who listens to this monkeyboy?

    If there was any truth in his argument, then he would have presented proof of the so called 'infringement'. Till then I'd say this is all BS.

    This is a dirty game of Microsoft to divide the Linux community.

    GREATEST joke in the history... LOL. i think microsoft can see the end of windows era is comin. Linux is about to grasp windows. so they are desperate to survive.. very weak move though. why dont they prove which part of windows we are using in linux???

    Microsoft itself uses BSD liscenced code:

    You can check it out also. Just open a terminal and use the following command. Change the path of your system32 folder accordingly...

    This will give something like this...

    Found somewhere from the Internet.

    M$'s talks always change with the times & current trends. It's never constant!!
    First they said RedHat Linux is not fit for the Enterprise, they also hosted their
    website on RHEL after several attacks on Windows NT Server by hackers!!
    M$ copied lot of stuff from UNIX & Mac!! What does Ballmer say about that??

    Did I read that right? Did he actually use the word 'innovation'? C'mon, get over it, Ballmer - when has Microsoft ever innovated! :eek:

    Here's a joke on Microsoft:
    :D :lol: :D

    There was a video of Ballmer jumping around like a crazy chimp. Seeing it I was convinced that Ballmer was a chimp, now I am convinced that he is crazy too. :))

    Ballmer's comments made me remember the fight that I saw between two kids in our apartments. There was this fight happening between a little kid and a bigger kid (This little kid is a serious PITA btw). So this big kid was like hitting the sh!t out of the little one and you know what the little one was saying? "Saale itne maarunga ki yaad rakhega" (i will hit you so bad...you will remember it for long)...the big kid would hit him again and the little one would say "Saale maar kha lega" (you are going to get it from me this time). At last the big kid got tired of hitting him and went to his home...guess what the little one said..."darr ke bhaag raha hai?" (you got so scared of me that you are running?)

    Ballmer knows Linux is kicking sh!t out of his of company but he just keeps acting like the little kid...:p He wants everyone to believe that they are winning...

  15. Then me what did microsoft make?. They made nothing. Microsoft is only like publisher. They did nothing on their own or made anything on their own. Atleast bill gates kept everything secrets now that secrets are getting revealed.

    M$ sucks. Only wish Linux get directx know-how.

    Oh, thanks! I usually figure out such acronyms myself but I have been hearing this one for quite a while now and couldn't understand what it was. :)
