That's hilarious! it looks JUST like an official MS site. I love the Monkey Colony on Mars: "We are already training the monkeys to do simple tasks like reboot the space ship when it blue screens"

:-P

Microsoft's plan to invade cuba and overthrow the government has succeeded. One Microsoft official said "It's a win-win situation. The US Government is happy and shuts up the DOJ while Microsoft institutes a monopoly within Cuba for everything from computer software to toilet paper. One more step closer to world domination. Heck, we could feed a whole development department for the cost of one developer's salary in the US. They may not know how to create an Operating System very well, but neither do our US developers."
:-D :-D :-D

Not that I'm particularly fond of Linux, it's just ... M$ seem to push their way into everything these days and it makes me sick.

That joke has been around forever... Microsoft will never deliver a stable operating system, it's not in their nature!

What others are saying:

"They want me to be a whore!"
-- Linus Torvalds.

"He doesn't scare me as much as he scares others."
-- Richard Stallman

"Jesus Christ, who are these people?"
-- Bill Gates

"I don't remember agreeing to that."
-- Janet Reno

"This is horse%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!. Horse%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!, horse%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!, horse%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!. And for those of you who don't know what that means, it's the #### that comes from a horse!"

Funny, But Impossible. Torvalds hole ideal was to release an os that could be disributed among whoever and customized and reprogramed any way people while still retianing the core of the os ms would have to aquire all to monopolize the market as is their tradition. And there are probobly tens of thousands of different linux out there.

Yeah, funny page, but perhaps not so far from the truth... :-?

Have you seen M$.Net & Ximian Mono Project?
