Re: [ossig] Microsoft and Linuxworld Malaysia 2003



Yes, watch out for the ShARed Source virus at
LinuxWorld.


I would like to jokingly suggest a fun,
but unfortunately illegal, tactic to the anti-MS
team:

Perhaps the anti M$ team could take
along copies of OO.o and pirate copies of
MS Office on CD, and start handing them out
in front of the Microsoft stall.  MS would have
to physically stop you from handing out the
MS-Office ones only, they would have no
right to stop you distributing OO.o!

(is not intervening to stop
a crime, also a crime?  In which case
if they did not try to prevent you giving out
Ms-Office, they are guilty of aiding software
piracy)

interesting to note that M$ is participating
as a Platinum (most expensive) sponsor for
linuxworld malaysia 2003.  looks like they're
serious about their global participation in the
linux shows.

also heard that a user group plans to "harass"
the sales and tech guys at their booth and are
also planning to distribute anti M$ handouts in
front of the M$ booth......
Do they need volunteer ?

my o my .... what is this world coming to????
