Microsoft woos Mandelson!

Postby anonymatous » Fri Apr 22, 2005 11:42 am


Did you read today's Times (Friday, April 22, page 10)? Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen is courting and wooing EU Commissioner for Trade and Industry, Peter Mandelson, by entertaining him in his luxury private yacht Octopus off the Caribbean! I recommended something along those lines for the Open source community several months ago, and nobody took any notice. Now Micro$oft is beating you to it!

Look, we offered to row him across Chasewater back in February, but he wasn't interested.

You'd think that Mr Mandelson would be a bit more careful, given his history of getting into hot water by accepting patronage of rich businessmen... :roll:
Hope this helps,
