"In a weirdly phrased technical posting from Support Services, Microsoft insinuates -- but doesn't come right out and say -- that if you want to run the upcoming Windows 2000, you'll need to delete Linux from your PC."

Has our rag-tag army of open-source evangelists and penguinistas managed to do what the U.S. Justice Department, a sea of lawyers, and the full force of the U.S. government failed to do: bring down the Evil Empire of Redmond? Apparently so. This technical posting from Microsoft reeks of fear."
