A while back, someone in Microsoft leaked a document to the net from
inside Microsoft, detailing ways in which they planned to deal with
this "problem." How many here ever saw this?

While I'm no big fan of Linux, it's got some good things going for it,
and it's better than anything that Microsoft has ever produced... I
don't want to think about what would happen to Linux if Microsoft
could somehow get it's claws into it and begin marketing it. Of
course, Microsoft already has experience with screwing up UNIX:
remember Xenix (and it's weird mutant SCO offspring that went off to
live on its own)?
