"Nobody is attacking OpenSolaris, FreeBSD, or Mac OS X.

Microsoft has no idea how to compete on merit, or how to counter a competitor that cannot be bought off, legislated out of existence, or destroyed. Plus it props up a half-trillion dollar commerical ecosystem whose survival is dependent on a continuing stream of shoddy, insecure, throwaway products. All of those Redmond remoras are not going to go out and get honest jobs; they've tied their fortunes to Microsoft and will fight tooth and nail to maintain the status quo."
