    Well the threat of cancer doesn't scare off smokers, so why should
    programmers be any different? ;)

  5. Maybe not ... but isn't that code bloated ? ... and fat does scare
    people :) :)


    It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to
    think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone´s fault.
    If it was Us, what did that make Me ? After all, I´m one of Us. I must be.
    I´ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No-one ever thinks
    of themselves as one of Them. We´re always one of Us. It´s Them that do
    the bad things. <=> Terry Pratchett. Jingo.

    I read that the code was leaked from a company porting Linux
    applications to Windows.(can't remember the link}. It's hard to see why
    MS would want GNUmake in its OS source, but who knows?. If they stole
    GZIP we could see the first legal defence of the GPL.

  8. Allegedly it was Mainsoft

    About 25% of NT4, around the same % of the Windows 2000 source and also most
    of the IE source code
