OK folks, Microsoft is the big bad wolf, but do you really think they would
steal the source code to Linux and openly defy a copyright? I couldn't
imagine the protests ever dying in the trade press, ever.
But, let's suppose they do. Think of the statement that would make:
We here at Microsoft can't make software worth crap, so
we needed to steal a superior software product. But, we
modified it, and added the Microsoft touch to it.
People would be laughing all the way to their Red Hat distribution.
Oh, btw: the tech columnist at the SJ Mercury might show up to one of our
InstallFests, he doesn't want to lug his huge monitor there though. But, he
wouldn't tell me when he's coming :(
