LXer: What Microsoft Doesn't Get - And What I Hope You Do

Published at LXer:

You know what Microsoft doesn't get? -- For one thing, the Internet. Microsoft doesn't control it. What it used to be able to do in the dark now falls out of its noxious bag of tricks into the Internet's bright light, stage front and center. And there stands Microsoft in the spotlight, with its pants down, and let me tell you, it's not a pretty sight. Microsoft also wants, I take it, exactly what Darl McBride wanted and still wants for SCO -- that every Linux install means payment to Microsoft (or SCO, depending on the dreamer). Not to put too fine a point on it, they want billions from Linux without having actually developed it themselves. Microsoft of course has larger dreams -- it wants to replace Linux, the kernel, and be everything to everybody.
