Even if true, who cares? Corporations are always trying to destroy their
competition. I was in Microsoft's local office in Dallas (Addison), five or
six years ago and they had their "Sun Down" posters pasted up everywhere.

The problem with Microsoft is they're greedy. Just at the time they want to
pay less for developers (laying off long time employees and lobbying for
many more HB1 visas), they actually have some competition. Open source
competition with an almost unlimited and enthusiastic "work force."

Bye, bye Microsoft monopoly.
