Just when we think the coast is safe, some wiseguy from LinuxWorld
comes up with the annoucement that they are gonna award Micro$oft's
Service for Unix (SFU) version 3.0 as the Best System Integration
Software at LinuxWorld 2003 !
See the annoucement at M$'s site:
and then the annoucement at LinuxWorld's site:
The first paragraph of M$'s annoucement as followed:
"One of just 10 winners, Windows Services for UNIX 3.0 (SFU 3.0)
took the Open Source Product Excellence Award for Best System
Integration Software at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo."
If you read the above quote carefully, and you will see something is
First of all, how can SFU win the "Open Source Product Excellence
Award" when it is NOT Open-Sourced ?
I ain't try to dismiss SFU or anything, but if one gonna give out an
"Open Source Product Excellence Award", one gonna make sure that THE
product comply with the award's namesake, and in this case,
What gives, huh ??!
