"chrisv" is a liar. "chrisv" is a stupid piece of shit.
That is Microsoft Corporation posting the same particular
smear attack that it has done at least 178 times before,
using yet another false identity -- "bubba". Other recent
identities used for repetitions of that same attack, always
using the same phrases, were "Dmitri", "Yuri", "Marco",
"Susan", and "Steven Morganstein".
The lying propaganda campaign against Linux in COLA --
comp.os.linux.advocacy -- has involved about 500,000 posts
over more than 10 years. It is designed to repel and
dissuade visitors to the newsgroup who are thinking about
trying Linux for themselves. COLA is read by thousands
No other entity than Microsoft has the motivation to
do such a propaganda operation, and it follows the
instructions in Microsoft's propaganda manual exactly:
"Ideally, use of the competing technology becomes
associated with mental deficiency, as in, `he believes
in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and OS/2.' Just keep
rubbing it in, via the press, analysts, newsgroups, ..."
The anti-Linux posters make the absurd claim that this
huge propaganda campaign was done by unconnected bored
people with nothing better to do, who all somehow by chance
settled in COLA, and without any incentive at all from
Microsoft made half a million anti-Linux pro-Microsoft
propaganda posts using similar phrases and techniques
to one another over a span of more than ten years.
Microsoft's other attacks against Linux have included:
1. paying SCO $100 million to try to kill Linux with an
entirely fraudulent copyright lawsuit,
2. forbidding by means of secret licensing conditions
the inclusion of Linux on any computer that's sold
with Microsoft Windows,
3. paying millions of dollars to PR companies to perpetrate
fraudulent campaigns of writing pro-Microsoft letters
to editors claiming to be from ordinary citizens,
4. bribing columnists and analysts to write fraudulent
anti-Linux columns and articles.
