Hey, I figured everybody already knew about this site, it is old, but still fun to read and look at. BTW I did a search for this, so if it is in AO somewhere, sorry about posting it twice.
There is some really funny stuff, though unfortunately, it is really just one page and everything else is a link to another site, mostly links to microsoft.com
Love that story, old, but still really funny.
MS Linux Faces Competition
Microsoft has hired lawyers to attack it's own product line in an attempt to confuse the DOJ. This stunning new tactic shows great promise according to several Harvard Law professors, although many expressed confusion when questioned about the long term effects of this campaign.
Lol, guilt, a good idea to name an MS product, they should be racked with it, giving us some new slightly less shoddy software every few years. I like MS, but, seriously, they should be experiencing guilt. I just had to reinstall win95, explorer.exe was corrupt! Geez.
With Microsoft Linux Enterprise Edition, you can create scalable multi-tier applications using our new Graphical User Interface command-Line Technology (GUILT)?
Lol, I love that part. Imagine that, charging that much for linux. Could you imagine a linux distro selling for hundreds? I can't, for me, linux is all about the power, and how cheap the power is.
We are now offering the MS Linux Introductory CD at a special introductory price of only $249.99 (plus shipping and handling), if you order before it ships.
Lol, I can imagine MS taking over small countries, with their hired army of goons.
Microsoft's plan to invade cuba and overthrow the government has succeeded
ENJOY THE SITE!

Lol, funny site. Thanks for tha link. Does anybody know the code for that layout? That site is nice, but it is only one page, if anybody knows the code to create the same layout please tell me because I think it would be awesome to make a site like this one, but a whole site. Full stories and everything.

If one is so inclined for it, yeh. RedHat w/ all the support and benefits they offer with the paid products, especially their server products, you could easily spend hundreds for the packaged distro.

Check it out : http://www.redhat.com/apps/commerce/
Still an amusing site none the less. Great break from the every day tedium.

I doubt it. Somebody would probably find a way to easily compile the source, and tell everybody about it, and since any linux distro has to give out its source, it wouldn't sell very much. Trust me, somebody always wants to cheat big companies.
