            The thing is that M$ as usual will just keep appealin' until they either ultimately loose (and even then they seem to win) or, as in nearly all cases, the smaller company runs out of money.

              That seems to be their strategy. They want to give some job to their Legal advisors.
              In this case too the company would have been gone even before they could have started the fight. Fortunately they won that insurance suit. Damn M$ strategies

                  I hope lindows does survive. it is going to hurt having their own insurance company sue then at the same time. m$ arms reach across the nation. this tactic has drained the resources of that little company. its sad cuz they cant afford to support their own product.

                  on a brighter note. i feel there m$ will be reduced to a shell of its former self within 5 years. their office xp tactics and mrd software have incited gov's around the world to use linux and openoffice.

                    it was nice to see that in Lindows case that they will get monetary help from their insurance company now.
                    i also heard that companies like IBM and HP are promoting Linux and other open source softwares by pre-installing them on their machines.
                    if i heard it right then may be it is beginning of a new trend.

                      i read that ibm has budgeted 1.2 billion to educate us users of the benifits of linux. over how many years, i dunno, the article didnt say (my guess is 5 years).

                      the trend has begun. i am too lazy to setup new comps with linux and the standard software for peeps. maybe if i look into it now, i'll find that it is easier.

                      the trend is against m$, that is for sure.

                        I can tell you this...before windows is beaten down to a pulp..more suits will fly than a mens warehouse e.g. suitstore in a tornado...lol I have been wondering what lindows is? all i know is that its windows with linux style or linxues kernal...I think its great whoever made it that they cracked the windows omega code...rofls...and put linux in there...I'd better go and get a copy of this before windows assimilates this too. But maybee windows will loose this time.:hammer:

                          Windows® is an MS trademark, think about that next time your gazing out of a transparent viewing panel.

                              i think he wanted to say Windows only...cos lindows is not a trademark of MS.
                              imo you got it wrong C_deck ;)
