Subject: Re: [LUG] More On The Patents/M$ Agenda
How much of this is FUD, or are MS going to sue, China
I'd like to see Microsoft try to sue a country with several billion
consumers of their products. Nice way to drive them into the OS fold :)
The long and short of it was that 80% of machines in China are running
M$ wasn't sweating over it,though.They said they were going to work on a
method of clawing back the money/hooking the Chinese in.
Round about the same time the Chinese wrote a particularly nasty trojan
that connects to the listening Task Manager port...mmmm..
Come to think of it,M$ is streets ahead in the open source game.I
mean,those polymorphic agobots are freely downloadable,and most
malicious software is compatible with all flavours of Windows.
