Absolutley Irellavent to the link as I gather it to be usless mumble and written by someone hopless in written text that dose not involve expression ,someone mentioned to me that Win$oft was thinking of Embedding Apache into IIS,

They were not joking however they had no idea what they were talking about either when I comes to M$ Servers.

But The above is what I was told.

Well the problem with this article would be even this: no person or company can buy Linux. Its not a company, its a kernel that is given away for free under the GPL and maintained by many people and decision making made by one person.

Oh well.. I wouldn't ever fall for an article like that one..
