So saith the software manufacturer which can't even keep the Office
API consistent from version to version, and has incompatibilities even
in the frigging *file formats*. Compare this to *nix or FreeBSD, where
a very small core team is in charge, and despite all forks, only the
Torvalds(tm) kernels qualify as Linux(tm).

I almost rotflmao'd when I've read it (page 58, c't 22/2000). c't is
rather Linux-heavy, for a mainstream technical publication, so it's
nice of Redmond folks to publish the funniest ad I've seen in a while.
