Subject: Microsoft prepares security assault on Linux

What's really interesting is how red-hat a week prior took steps to
distance itself as competeing with M$, almost like they had a clue in
advance this crap was going to fly.  And of course, it's logical for M$ to
go right to the throat of RH, afterall, they are the main game in trying
to make a buck off what is for all intents and purposes freely available
OS/SW.  Bring RH to it's knees with trying to debunk FUD from M$ and they
end up withgout ever competing against opensource.

OK, so you're a Ph.D.  Just don't touch anything.
