One of the interesting things about the Microsoft Strategic Deception
Initiative is that MS employees have been instructed to spread FUD
in all media - including Usenet news groups, especially those supporting
competitors, but make it appear that it is not coming from MS.
I knew about this MS compile bug (which is a bug of the compiler tools
and NT) and its solution some time ago. It's in the documentation
of the latest Samba release. (Interesting how even in SMB MS claims it
is a published standard, then adds its own broken interface components
and refuses to document them so that the "standard" is none at all and
hopefully won't work for non MS products, whether apps or OS.)
For how MS is driven not by providing the best solutions for its
customers, but by its incredible greed for an absolute monopoly
over all computing, check out *http://www.veryComputer.com/.* There's
a neat link to an article about how the best NT server is not from
Microsoft at all.
