I read about this more carefully later thinking that not only could Microsoft's
hypervisor self-serving lies lead to antitrust action , but they also stifled
Phoenix's Linux ambitions.
Microsoft: writing laws (_and_ EULAs) to illegalise the #1 competitor.
Even Mary Jo Foley is looking away from Microsoft. Watch her headline...
Ziff Davis (ZDNet owner) went bankrupt and Microsoft loses its grip and
relevance. Might Mary wish to cover Linux news in years to come? ;-)
