    Nice. It's like two sumo Grand Champions (or whatever they're called) going at it with a bunch of wrecking balls tied to each hand.

    It's going to be interesting to see the court's interpretation of the GPL.

    It is.

    I briefly caught an article USA Today about that. The EU is attacking M$ over the wrong stuff. The Media Player for Christ's Sake. How about the fact that up until the US slapped them you didn't have an operating system option for PC's. It was MS or nothing after OS Warp gave up. I have just started noticing companies shipping PC's with Linux. That should be the EU's major complaint, not the fucking Media Player.

    I think they will make a big show out of it the way the US courts did, and then hit M$ with a slap on the wrist and tell them to start playing nice.

    Ok, I haven't kept track of sumo all that well... but yes, I meant sumo and not lame WWF / WWE stuff.
