Ok, totally OFFTOPIC, but...

I just realized that Microsoft is secretly promoting Open Source!  They
are providing this visual basic scripting for each Windows user, and forcing
virus writers to write nice Open Source virii in vbs.  Wow!  Gone are the
days of closed source proprietary ".COM" virus writers.  ".COM" is dead thanks
to the wonderful Microsoft "Open Source" Virus Broadcast Server aka VBS.

Wow, this is wonderful!  It brings a tear to my eye to know that the evil
empire is now fully embracing Open Source.  Even though this new Open Source
is destroying the entire ".COM" virus economy, I salute them.

The scariest thing of all is the rumor that RMS was going to incorporate
the ILOVEYOU virus into the GPL v3.
