Jim, Scott 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$.) jt | -----Original Message----- | From: email@example.com | [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]On Behalf Of Scott Klement | Sent: Saturday, December 15, 2001 3:08 PM | To: email@example.com | Subject: Re: MS using other OS | | | | 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.
