    Is there a complete list floating around anywhere of all the companies ms has purchased over the years - they seem to buy companies more often than I go shopping at the supermarket...

    "There is room for a conspiracy theory here. It could be possible that Microsoft wants to stop the solution for Linux."
    COULD BE possible...?

    I think the only good news is that Microsoft WON'T be continuing the product line... just what we need... Linux as virus infested as Windows is.

    I would love to find a list of companies they have swallowed up - can't seem to find one google'ing around. I know they swallowed up like 3 or 4 ( game developing companies ) of them right before they introduced the x-box...

    The essence of Christianity is told us in the Garden of Eden history. The fruit that was forbidden was on the Tree of Knowledge. The subtext is, All the suffering you have is because you wanted to find out what was going on. You could be in the Garden of Eden if you had just kept your f***ing mouth shut and hadn't asked any questions.
