How Bill Gates used large, firm breasts to destroy Linux.

Salon is running an insightful article on how Bill Gates used cyberporn to combat the free software movement. Essentially they imprinted images of huge breasts on the minds of sex-starved programmers to distract them from their tasks. This is definitely a must-read for anyone interested in Microsoft's unethical practices. And the article is worth it just for the image at the top of the page. More fodder for the DOJ case, I guess.

Heh. Cute April Fool's joke, though of course, most Free(speech) software geeks I know typically don't get caught up in pr0n. Funny, though, even though it's hard to swallow (given that Linux is still around and Bill Gates isn't exactly keen on using AOL, what with MSN and all that).

I've always found Bill Gates' large, firm breasts rather alluring.

This has got to be one of the best April Fools days I've ever seen. The stories at Salon and Freshmeat are just superb. I don't know what happened at Slashdot though.
