MS calls open source potentially viral
It is causing CRITICISM folks, not the rare disease known as critism. Sorry for not checking my spelling better Scott.
I can see why Linux has Microsoft upset - I just installed SuSE Linux 7.2 Personal edition which I bought from Fry's last Sunday for $19.95 -and it is awesome!
That's right, a boxed operating system with tons of applications -they didn't skimp on this personal edition, and basic manuals are included for just $19.95
-today, July 3rd, is the last day- then it goes back up to $29-
This is really polished Linux folks, and nothing seems to be broken like in Mandrake 8 (sorry Mandrake).

They allow FreeBSD, yes, because they use it. They use it, because the open source model is a bit different.....under GPL products like linux, when you add code, you share it with everyone else, and thus, everyone benefits......with products like BSD, you can make changes, and you can choose whether you want to share or not.....so of course, people will share, MS will absorb, MS will add to the code and say.....nope, not sharing this stuff, SUCKERS!!!
