    agreed - MS has a huge compitor now.. did i say - HUGE

    so - without going for more capitalist/communist analogies, what does MS do?

    - well for one they raise the bar
    ( longhorn - love it or hate it will do this)
    This alone should make OSS a non-issue for yet another 2-3 years on Desktop.

    - They embrace TRUST
    ..no not trusted computing.. or whatever the buzzword is this week - MS will - or MUST - learn to be humble and small in communications

    NO more smary office websites full of lies and happy office drones and "catchy" headlines

    FIRE YOUR MARKETING COMPANIES
    ( go team comercials...akk! your fired! all of you!)

    MS needs to - again - look to companies like Google - for perception and fuzziness

    To summarize: Microsoft needs to turn its DISADVANTAGES into ADVANTAGES.

    It really quite simple..

    Continue building the most great OS the world has ever seen, dont burden it with ( WE OWN YOU LICENING ACTIVATION) andand Linux will be toast

    Throw out 80% of the source code while your at it - for free bug fixes

    MICROSOFT: YOU NEED TO ACT - BE HUMBLE - WE DONT WANT A CHAOTIC MARKETPLACE OR TO HAVE TO USE LINUX

    pull back on activation and drm....for NOW..


    PS - could you not also make a windows uodate style online compiler? so you release what ever source you can - and developers can compile it using some evil online thing Wink
