It sure smells like a hoax. I mean, really:
"""Microsoft has only been able to achieve this position of
near hegemony on the implicit premise that its products and tools
would always remain open and unrestricted in their usage. If
Microsoft had ever tried to thwart its competition by legally or
technologically preventing competitive software from running on
their systems or being built with their tools, then they would
have been unlikely to have retained customers or to have grown so
"Open and unrestricted"? It sure seems ludicrous to see these
words in the same sentence with "Microsoft".
