Interesting analogy. Goliath was the menacing giant of the enemy.

Wanna bet how many people have tried to hack Apache or FreeBSD? It may very well be that hacking MS is the path of least resistance. But I think that it would be tough to deny that it's also a case of "let's just pile on the easy target". And why are they the easy target? Because the market decided and they won. Or because Gates is too rich? Or because the gov't is after MS? Regardless of the reason, it's David vs. The Goliath, and everyone seems to always pull for David. What is more likely to raise more eyebrows in the general press - hacking MS or FreeBSD or Apache? MS of course. Why? Because their Goliath. +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
