What about the memos showing how Microsoft made Dell drop the line of
computers shipped with Linux installed?
"Kuney introduced a Microsoft memo to Ballmer, from the spring of 2000, that
called into question Dell Computer Corp.'s backing of Linux. The memo said it
was "untenable that a Windows Premier Partner would be promoting Linux." A
subsequent memo, from early 2001, showed that Dell had disbanded its Linux
business unit, laid off the head of the unit and dispersed the talent, Kuney
said. He introduced other similar memos regarding Compaq Computer Corp.'s
Linux push and Microsoft's alleged pressure on Compaq to "meet demand but not
help create demand" for Linux"
They sure deserve many folks playing xbill. At least.
