Microsoft Shocks World: Scraps Linux Plans
In a surprise move, Microsoft threw away its copy of RedHat Linux 5.1 today without installing it after all. This decision is said to have followed a heated discussion about whether vi, emacs, or notepad was the best program editor. The discussion ended when an unnamed ex-CEO pointed out that notepad was the only editor of the three that promised to reduce code bloat by refusing to open files greater than 64K (although he neglected to mention that this feature was lost with the release of Windows 2000).
Unnamed sources familiar with the matter have expressed mixed feelings about the decision, stating positions from "do you really need a statement now, or can I finish my cup of coffee?" to "what the hell is snark.com?"
