    What a load of garbage, yey for more anti-Microsoft linux conspiracies.

    I love how the date is tagged "2002" before words like "IMHO" were even used by the younger population, nevermind adults.

    I disagree.

    Actually, it's a fairly insightful result if one chooses to delve into the wider primary evidence documents provided at the Groklaw Comes v. Microsoft Homepage. To view this as a simple anti-MS/Linux screed misses the point by a mile and misses the opportunity to have a fairly productive discussion.

    Thanks for the interesting link, Pedro!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BTW, a little OT here...about the 2002 date and the acronym, IMHO.

    "Early mass communication abbreviations and acronyms came from Morse Code operators using telegraph lines in the 19th century.
    (Like SOS for requesting help.)

    More such abbreviations were created by HAM amateur radio operators using the public airwaves during the 20th Century.
    (Like CQ for seeking you. ICQ=I seek you.)

    Then in the 1960s the nascent Internet introduced more, including LOL for laughing out loud..IMO, has been used for years before texting.."

    Also, see -

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Initialism

    Not every acronym started with texting or posting at a forum...
    alot of them started in WWII too..

    FYI! HTH! :)

    Please explain why you think its "a load of garbage" ?

    Wrong, its an anti-Linux conspiracy by Microsoft that Groklaw has uncovered.

    I must have missed the point then, it just seems like any random person could have typed that up there to me, no?
