"The comparison between Free(dom) software and
communism is always demeaning and misleading. One reader has just
sent us this new piece, which he described as a “Nice article

are about; Microsoft never complied with some of the most basic
rules, which is why it spends so much time in the courtroom.
"Today’s Comes vs Microsoft exhibit is Exhibit PX06482

GNU/Linux that ended up as scaremongering (the sky will fall if
Free software wins)."
