It is the eve of Windows 7.  They are simply following a pattern
as designated by their masters.  It is rather sad that they must
resort to lies, hateful language, poster attacks, libelous
insulting language that if exercised in the open would result in
physical violence, lawsuit.

They accuse the Linux advocates of driving away the readership,
but it is readily obvious who has done that.

Report: Microsoft funded 'grass roots' campaign

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Microsoft has been helping to fund a
letter-writing campaign to pressure state attorneys general to go
easy in their antitrust lawsuits against the software giant, the
Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.

Two letters sent earlier this year to Utah Attorney General Mark
Shurtleff contained the names of dead people, the newspaper said.

The letter-writing campaign targeted some of the 18 attorneys
general whose states have joined the U.S. Justice Department in a
sweeping antitrust lawsuit. No two letters are identical but some
contain similar wording and appeared to be written spontaneously
by ordinary people, the newspaper said.

"It's sleazy," said Minnesota Attorney General Mike Hatch, whose
office received about 300 pro-Microsoft letters. "This is not a
company that appears to be bothered by ethical boundaries."
