OUTSTANDING CATCHES...!  Great articles...

(Seems sorta funny this qualifies as "news" given how long this has been
happening with Microskunk and the 400, or rather the "rumored" use of a 400
out-sourcing company by M$.)

| Here is a another, similar story:
| http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/28/23348.html
| Interesing how often FreeBSD suddenly is coming up in the Midange-L
| mailing list, isn't it?
| The story that you're referring to states that "Microsoft offers
| disparaging
| remarks about open-source solutions".  That's not really true.  Microsoft
| has never made disparaging remarks about FreeBSD.  Microsoft's remarks
| have all been against the GPL licensed products such as Linux.
| Here's an article that touches on that.
| http://www.zdnet.com/zdnn/stories/news/0,4586,2775033,00.html
| IMHO, Microsoft has tried elimining both OS/400 and FreeBSD from their
| company, but Windows just isn't able to replace them.  It's just not
| robust enough.
