Microsoft Says the Darnedest Things

Microsoft has the ability to say the most blatantly false things in a way that makes them sound like the word of God.

One of them is that they aren't a monopoly. Many people find this somewhat ridiculous. But recently they said something amazing to support this notion.

They held up Linux as proof that they aren't a monopoly; as proof that there is plenty of competition.

Ha ha. Linux. Let's just think about this for a minute.

I'm so glad that Microsoft is not a monopoly. I'm glad they've set me straight.
