This is a link to a forum that has a whole lot of interesting stuff to say about microsoft - it's future plans (scary) and more useful information about the their software in general. Gotta check it out. Very informative.

#boycott-ms on efnet

I say we either support this or start our own. There are other platforms and other OS's out there that would love support, and would probably back up a boy cot.

This would mean boy cot every M$ product.

Office
Windows
Money
IIS
Front page
ect ect ect ect.

I am going to try to contact the guy starting the boy cot and put up a support page on my site, if anyone else is intrested and has a site. contact me. I am going to try to put togetther a network of people willing to post info and get some sort of slogan and banner we can all use.

I have email Chris on New order and asked if he would like to host a boycot site on my site

http://www.WeThe.com (nice ring to it)

I am looking for something before this kicks off guys.

Links to any open source project you know of. I want to contact every developer out there that will be hurt by this if it kicks off and get their support.

To do this we would have to show a united front. if most of the open source sites out there provided info on how this would kill them, and how it would kill free software and how to not kill software it just might have an affect.

M$ is kinda taking a risk here. If this fails before it ever takes off they are in deep shit.

Gizzy want in on this?

would this not violate some sort of law against monopolys? i know microsoft has undergone investigation for that in the past, but wouldn't the government be forced to step in if microsoft gained this much control?

Well, I finally read the article. Wow huh? I certainly have my doubts that it'll happen, but I think there's a significant chance that it will. It kinda sucks. Boycott MS? That's a joke. Sorry to crash your hopes in such a tactless fashion, but it won't amount to anything.

What will I do? I'll wait and see what happens. I'll keep my ears and eyes open to monitor the changes in how things go. If I see a way of subverting the system, then I'll go on. If everything happens as microsoft wants it, that's the end of my recreational programming and webdesign. It's the end of using software and playing mp3's I'll never pay for. It may be the end of my interest in the computer.

I used to be against microsoft being broken up by the courts. Now I'm all for it.

I dont think the boy cot is a bad idea, its good to post your opinion and explain to everyone else y and how they r fucking us and it will b a good informal site for peopel to visit about tho i dont think it will stop ms at all. It will b the end of computing if im that restricted unless i get a $100,000 job or something but first i will customize my new benz with that kinda money .

Im with Moff there, and ever since i heard about this ive talked to several people and they all agreed if microsoft does this the internet will be changed forever and i doubt anyone will welcome this. There was a post on another BBS about this and one response i thought was completely true,
"Remember

those who sacrifice freedoms for security get neither"

It bugged me on New order and bugs me here. Gad damn it, if you are going to quote someone,

1.) Give thier god damned name

2.) Get it right.

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
