Uh oh

For those of you who have kissed off openSUSE, Novell, and possibly recently Ubuntu for its Yahoo deal (which by the way is with Yahoo, NOT Microsoft), it is time to kiss off other things, such as Amazon. Granted this deal blows to the highest level and just shows how shite Microsoft is, there are many companies doing this same thing with Microsoft, deals like this and others. So while you are sitting there, wearing your anti-Micro$oft (see what I did there? That’s what all of the cool Microsoft haters do) hats, ditch the following product manufacturers:

  • Samsung
  • Fuji
  • Nearly every computer manufacturer
  • Asus
  • MSI
  • Nearly every automobile manufacturer
  • More than likely your lovely ISP
  • and so much more…

Don’t forget to dismiss your family members who are using Microsoft products too, but not Uncle Ned, he is cool, oh and Aunt Jane, as they at least use Linux. And the next time you get a bill, just throw it out, as it was probably printed from a Microsoft computer. Oh boy, and your government, local police, because they are up to their armpits in Microsoft deals. I wonder if Microsoft touched the snow in the backyard? I think I will get naked and sleep out there tonight. Yuck, the thought of something Microsoft has a deal with anywhere near me gives me the heebee-jeebees.

NOTE: I sure hope you all found the sarcasm, because I am not a Microsoft lover at all. I am tired of their BS just as much as the next person, but I am also tired of the anti-Microsoft extremists and their simple-minded attitudes. It’s fine to stand up against Microsoft, and those who have deals with Microsoft, but just remember, that is a lot of standing, hope your legs and back are ready for it.

  • Oh come on! I dismissed my family members who use Microsoft products years ago!

  • Dear Rich,

  • @Jonathan – hahaha! just don’t give them my email address for support ๐Ÿ˜€

    @shermann – glad to make you smile.

    Richard,

    You missed out water, the pump system is probably controlled by ms oh and shops, so no family, food, or water. More importantly no COFFEE!

    But on a serious note your right extremism in anything is BAD!

    I’m not sure how the message gets so screwed up, a lot of the time the original idea is a good one then somehow militants takes over and corrupt it into some angry message from hell, or God of course, if MS hadn’t of produced windows would we be any better off limited to using Unix?

    Who knows. What we do know is it’s time people engaged their brains it’s what they have them for ๐Ÿ™‚

    There is a world of difference between a commercial deal between two private entities, and a commercial deal in which someone sells part of the open source community to Microsoft.

  • TGM

    Heh, you almost forgot Intel and AMD – wouldn’t leave you with much.

    Remember folks, the extreme is ALWAYS a bad place. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • val-gaav

    That’s why it’s so much easier to be a Gnome hater ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Fred Renquist

    LINUX is the WORD! And nothing else matters!

  • Zac

    Good post!

    Thankyou.

    Yes despise Microsoft as much as anyone, but you still have to live. There are smarter ways bringing them down over the long term, and an example of that is the Ubuntu search deal with Yahoo. I support it, even though in an ideal world I would rather the deal was with another company, but it’s fine.

    Fighting Microsoft over this stuff is just fighting the symptoms, not the disease. The real solution is to kill off this software patent BS altogether. The EU has the right idea.

  • Excellent. That’s all i’ve got to say.
