Z!re, only the US government can do that. The private sector has no control over the enforcement of the Patriot Act (thankfully).

Regardless of whatever stunt SCO, MS, or any other would-be wants to pull off, I'll always be an open-source supporter. All this negativity against open source is simply backlash from lost profits due to people realizing that commercial applications have sucked for the past five years and people are looking towards, and finding, legitimate alternatives.

DP, the Patriot Act allows the US government to arbitrarily arrest and incarcerate anyone who *might* be a terrorist. They don't even have to have a warrant, and if you're taken in this way, you're not obligated to a fair trial either. The Patriot Act is a gigantic spit on the face of the forefathers of the USA, as it is a direct contradiction to the Constitution and all the principles this nation was founded on. There isn't anything anyone can do about it either, since it was signed in by the President, and even if Congress were to overturn it, he could overturn the overturning because he has that kind of power. Basically...we have to wait until we have a Democrat in office before we can rid the country of the barrel-feeding scum-sucker that is George W Bush and his freedom-raping Patriot Act. And when his scumbag arse is kicked out of the White House, I'm going to laugh in his face for being such a moron redneck who is only president because Jeb Bush in Florida messed with the voting results.

I've never been extremely fanatic about this open-source thing...It's just useful, if you ask me, not any weird, elite "passion" or whatever...

They sound worried.
"We will continue to moniter the situation" is pretty serious for Microsoft, if you ask me.

Whoah, whoah.

Trail of tears. Executive order against a direct court ruling. I don't see you bashing that too often, Nek.

I sure hope this is a hoax. If not, then, like they said, this would be absolutely devastating. In fact, it would perhaps be the end of Microsoft's reputation as the leading OS-maker.

Wow, we can expect more windows servers to go down =( and more viruses. Thank you M$.

May be M$'s new slogan will be:
Microsoft, how vulnerable do you want to be today?

In that case, I'm glad Linux is the OS of choice throughout our entire data center. Cheesy
