It is kinda funny ... (grin)

'ol Cleasy could do a lot with material like that. Interesting the point too, about the MS economic structure being locked in to their questionable practises culture. Rendering them irreversible.

It seems a rather juvenile, arrogant response to me. A smart person would have been much cooler and subtler about it.

If he really wanted to damage Microsoft he could have been more effective on the inside and would have been well paid for it, I expect, too.

The guys gotta have some fun ... besides, i think he does have inside links from time to time. If he went in himself he could get recognised. But it would be even funnier i think.

He has done some crazy sh** but what hes done for the open source community (somewhat unnoticed by some) is quite significant.
