    apperantly google hired a guy that used to work for MS and left them to work for goole and by doing so probably breached his NDA with MS...
    needless to say MS is really f---ing pissed off, hehehe. :D

    article's a few days old but i only saw it now... thought it was worth a mention....


    edit: someone should probably post this in the news... im just too lazy right now... and i have to go to work soon... :\

    no, probably not, but this can quite possibly be a prolonged and rather interesting legal battle.

    I knew there was a reason I like Google. IMO I don’t think they can do anything that will hurt MS much. At least they have something new to keep them occupied being that they don’t really have to do anything about that competition thing other than squash it. :p

    Microsuck needs to go down... They're just sore that someone else is more enticing then they are.
    I wish MS would stop producing bad softwear too...
    hey had teh time & resources after Win95 to produce a GOOD OS.. instead they gave us Win98 when we should have had Win2k.
    Im all for Google in this case.. so what if tehys aid '...pursue Lee like wolves...' they just menat to agreesively pursue him becdause he is a valuable asset. Ballmer threw a frikkin chair ACROSS THE ROOM! Of course, Ballmer says he didnt... oh well.. MS not gonna die & neither is Google, i dont see it happapening. I would reccomend keeping an eye on this.

    Windows is a fine product, the main problem is it's simple interface. People who don't know how to use a computer can fuck it up easily. Linux has just as much bugs/problems as Windows, if not more. The thing is most people use Windows so nearly all viruswrites/exploiters/scriptkiddies attack Windows making it look worse than Linux.
    Sure it's not a cheap OS, Bill Gates donates a lot of money to charity though, he's a good man, even though most people here like to hate people who are succesfull. Don't like Microsoft? Don't use any of their software/hardware, see how far you get with alternatives.

    Senator: "Mr Gates, when did you realise you were creating a monopoly?"
    Bill Gates: "Monopoly's just a game senator, I'm trying to control the fuckin' world."

    (Quoted) :D Now isn't that very applicable in this case? :laugh:
