UNIX (OS X, iPhone, HP-UX, etc.) and Linux are still Microsoft's biggest enemies. Even other
rivals like Google and IBM rely on them.

What large company other than Microsoft relies on Microsoft software? MySpace?

That's why we get so many AstroTurfers attacking Linux. Even Apple is afraid of Linux, which
is better than their UNIX and a lot cheaper.
