LXer: Is Microsoft the Newest Free Software Advocate?
Published at LXer:

What the heck is happening in Redmond? Is Microsoft really giving away antivirus software? Yes, friends, it appears that they are. Come on Microsoft, we really want to hate you. I've carried this Microsoft voodoo doll* around with me for years--stabbing it every time I have to pay money for one of your products on a new laptop or desktop computer. I cringe when I see "Vista Ready." And, I almost hurl penguin when I have to activate my software. So, somebody please pinch me, wake me up, take the needle out of my arm and tell me it's all been a bad trip.

It's a bad trip. Microsoft always gives away its product when its tying to put the competition out of business. Remember Netscape and how Microsoft gave IE away for free and pre-installed it to kill Netscape?
