>On 04 Mar 2004 at 18:18:41, Ian Kluft arranged the bits on my disk to say:
>> In 1998, when the first Halloween documents were posted, exposing leaked
>> MS documents outlining their battle plan against Open Source, we needed
>> to let off some steam and protested on front of Microsoft's office in
>> Palo Alto. It quickly became known as the Silicon Valley Tea Party
>> (named because the protest fell within days of the 225th anniversary of
>> the Boston Tea Party, one of the historical events that led to the
>> American Revolution.)
>> Since then MS has built a campus in Mountain View and consolidated their
>> offices from around the valley there.
>Who's up for some tea? ;-)
Just so it doesn't seem as if that got dropped, the discussion continued
How's the mood out there? Are we all pissed now that the link has
been uncovered? The lawsuits that SCO has started filing against Linux
users are funded by a money trail that has been tracked to Microsoft.
Should MS hear directly from us about that?
