Hey guys this story is now shouting 'VERIFY EVERYTHING'.
It certainly isnít a hard news story. Microsoft is going to advertise the merits of Windows by comparing it to Unix. Honestly is that NEWS.
If it isnít news then why is the story being published?
If someone is working on a concept on a HTML page. Is it news when it turns out to be on UNIX system. C'mon this doesn't make sense.
We get told that a hardware vendor Unisys that has a long history of running Unix on its hardware will jointly advertise for its customers to switch to Windows.
The texts of the ads are not part of the news story and no one in Unisys is quoted to confirm this marketing shift.
The URL reported to contain these ads is shown in a later post to this forum as www.wehavethewayout.com Register.com says this URL belongs to Unisys Corp and that the domain servers are
When I try the URL I am told I am not authorized, so I still don't see the ads.
A copy of an email posted here seems to be a ha ha letter from a person at an ISP saying that the URL is an account on one of their machines. I have no way of knowing if this letter is real or not or the intentions of the author.
Generally it is poor business for any business to publicly ridicule a customer. I trust the ISP will handle the situation properly if it turns out to be real correspondence.
