“I’ve killed at least two Mac conferences. [...] by injecting Microsoft content into the conference, the conference got shut down. The guy who ran it said, why am I doing this?”
Summary: Two conferences which target a Linux audience, namely LinuxTag 2010 and LinuxCon 2010, have invited (or were pressured to invite) people from the company that attacks Linux with insults, lobbying, and litigation
THE convicted monopolist which engages in racketeering against Linux [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7] is up to it again. “It appears that Microsoft will have a speaker at LinuxCon 2010,” writes Satipera. “I see that Hank Janssen goes to many Linux conferences in his role for Microsoft, I wonder how well he is received?”
“Microsoft even uses the word “infiltrate” to describe this and it did that many times before.”Microsoft does this in order to silence critics and try to divide people. How do we know this? We have leaked documents from Microsoft which state this very clearly. Microsoft even uses the word “infiltrate” to describe this and it did that many times before. It’s purely malicious and self serving, so the organisers of these events are being bamboozled, by Microsoft’s own admission. Microsoft is laughing at them behind their backs.
But it’s not just LinuxCon 2010 though. “Microsoft is going after Linux Tag directly,” told us a reader this morning. “The conference organizers still have time to salvage their reputation by sending James Utzschneider and any others like him out the door.
“There’s nothing that Microsofters can say that can overcome their past and current sabotage of all things Open Source and Open Standards.
“The conference is a few weeks away and there is time to round up a reputable speaker or two to fill in the gap.”
Is it LinuxTag or LinuxTax (as Microsoft wishes it to be)?
How much crime and litigation must Microsoft commit against Linux before it is rejected from Linux conferences? This happened before and the story is always the same. Attendees get pissed off. This whole excuse of “tolerance” is frequently being brought up, but Microsoft has zero tolerance towards Linux, which it keeps suing. Moreover, Microsoft is not a DNA thing, it’s a choice people make. They choose to work against society, so why reward them or treat them with abundant respect?
People who attend Linux conferences are having Microsoft shoved down their throat. Even in a Linux conference, those who oppose this will be called or at least secretly labeled “Microsoft haters” (if they say something about it, Microsoft will spread rumours and smears, as we saw before). Microsoft uses the exact same strategies as some of the religious lobbies. They play the same cards and they hurt Linux while smiling back.
“Where .com meets .org” is how our reader described this year’s LinuxTag. That one particular .com is the company behind several Linux lawsuits. Next up: Poseidon invites the president of BP for tea and cookies under the sea. █
