In Segments Two- "Microsoft, Linux and the Fat Lady"- or
Contrary to many opinions, Linux is far from over and Microsoft
still has a very very long road ahead
This is an editorial segment hosted by Jeff
Gerhardt that will carry over the next several weeks.
We are going to take this segment as an opportunity to re-ignite
our (TLS) position of taking Microsoft to task at will. We have
been called to task on this issue a number of times over the years.
We do not accept the argument that we need to play nice to look
make the Linux Community look "corporate."
This week we will focus on the Wall Street Journal article,
written by ROBERT
H. BORK AND KENNETH W. STARR. These two highly controversial
men are about as conservative and corporate as you can find. To the
surprise of many, both come out on the side that the most recent
finding by the appeals courts are only a temporary reprieve for
Microsoft. Quoting the article... "On no count, moreover, was
Microsoft's behavior found lawful....Now there is to be a hearing,
and there are compelling reasons to take divestiture
This is far from over folks......
