[News] Mandriva Has Nothing to Do with Criminal Corporation, Microsoft

Hash: SHA1

Mandriva and Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| Adam has already unofficially dismissed rumours on François' part, but still 
| I feel like pointing out the obviousness everybody with some real knowledge 
| of Mandriva should've spotted..  
| Let's summarize arguments against silly speculations about Mandriva wanting 
| to consider any Microsoft deal seen from my perspective: 
| 1. Mandriva is europe based, not such big pressure in the ~only location 
| where such agreements would hold much relevance 
| 2. Mandriva has no proprietary components with any concerns of Microsoft
| 3. ALL of Mandriva's software published is free and has been released under 
| the GPL, proprietary software is none of Mandriva's concerns, only 
| proprietary software relationships is through partners  



Sun exec accuses Microsoft of 'patent terrorism'

| The efforts of Microsoft to pressure the Linux community over alleged and
| unspecified patents is akin to "patent terrorism", according to a local
| executive for Sun Microsystems.


Microsoft, the art of Corporate Terrorism.

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft, no longer the technological leader in the Computer Desktop
| market, is taking on a terrorist role in its attempt remain in power
| at all costs. (see the link to the CNN story below)
| The tactic is intended to frighten current, and would be, free
| software users away from products that Microsoft just can't compete
| with. It's not a new tactic, but for the first time desperation is
| beginning to show.


Convicted Monopolist Terrorizes Software Industry

| That headline is designed to grab your attention. Sensationalistic as
| it may be, it also happens to be true, if what you mean by 'terrorize'
| is to provoke fear.
| If you've been following the presidential race in the United States,
| you know the present crop of candidates have been exploiting the fear
| of the American people as they never have before in the history of
| the country.
