Bill Gates, Steve Jobs Top CompTIA Poll on Most Influential IT Industry
Personalities of the Past 25 Years

,----[ Quote ]
| The co-founders of two of the world's most successful, recognizable and 
| innovative information technology (IT) companies are the industry's most 
| influential personalities of the past 25 years, according to a poll by the 
| Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA).   


They also praised Internet Explorer not so long ago. it's a Microsoft lobbying
arm in disguise. It's funded by Microsoft. It attacks the EU, the FSF, ODF,
and just about anything that is a threat to Microsoft. Disgusting. Revolting.
They vote for people who give them a paycheck.

| First, it was bloggers; now Microsoft is hiring Wikipedia writers to
| set its stories straight on the popular online encylopedia. How
| dumb does Microsoft think we are?


Clearing up anti-GPL3 FUD

,----[ Quote ]
| Some of the bad publicity about GPL3 is deliberate. A particularly
| bad article by Dan Lyons of Forbes magazine painted an offensive
| picture of GPL3 and Richard Stallman, even accusing Stallman of
| having sex with flowers (!!!) after Lyons failed to comprehend
| a scientific joke.


Perens Lashes Out at Claims GPL 3 Brings Legal Risks

| "Let's make it clear that [ACT] is Microsoft's lobbying front and
| that they are going to paint as negative a picture as they can,"
| Perens told eWEEK in an interview.
| "Obviously, GPL software is displacing Microsoft enough to have
| them concerned, and it's doing it at customers who are important
| to them. A lawyer's job is to scare the other side if they can--because
| they know it's cheaper than winning a case in court," he said.

| After only three weeks at Microsoft as an "evangelist," Michael
| Gartenberg is returning to his old job as vice president and
| research director at JupiterResearch.
