So who's all running around like chickens with their heads cut off cleaning up their Microsoft machines? Oh wait, we don't run Microsoft machines so we can relax and drink beer. Thank you Linux.

I have been informed by an IT manager of a big univercity down here that
all of this is a Linux issue!.:roll:

These worms/virii are created by Linux users no less - to shame and attack
poor micro$oft 'cause they are so big/good.

(Oh - and is he upset 'cause the IT classes are moving to Linux staring 2004!) :twisted:

AND he then proceeds to try and inform me of the first big virus that
was released last year - that infect Linux :lol: - couldn't give me the name
or run down of that though! :?:

Shame - poor billy et. al. - and the anti-virus programs that cannot catch it :P

Been thinking of how to develop/write a program using Linux - that will run
without a hitch on winbloze - is that at all possible? or does these virus developers
know or do something I don't know about :oops: In any case - how to test someting
like this then :!: (or maybe he's confused - and the stuff was developed on a Mac?) :D

My - feeling? - serves them bloody right!
I cannot for the life of me understand people like this, and how come people
stay with the M$ crap after incidents like these!

But lets wait and see what happens the rest of the month. :wink:
