Mas nem tudo anda bem no “reino da Dinamarca” Microsoft on Intel’s Anti-Linux: “Please Keep Confidential. This is a Nightmare”
IN previous E-mails that reveal Microsoft’s fight against Linux at Intel, Bill Gates called it a “Jihad”. This is a furious battle that Microsoft secretly had going against Intel’s support for Linux. This was so secret that Microsoft executives even abstained from telling their peers about it. “Please keep confidential. this is a nightmare…,” wrote Bill Veghte for example. There was great caution there because someone could lose a job over the mischief (leak), which Brian Valentine was eventually allowed to know about.From: Joachim Kempin Sent: Monday, July 03, 2000 1:31 PM To: Bill Gates; David Heiner (LCA) Subject: Attorney/Client Privileged Privileged -----Original Message----- From: Bill Gates Sent: Monday, July 03, 2000 10:19 AM To: Joachim Kempin Subject: FW: CNET.com - News - Enterprise Computing - Intel to spend $100 million on assist As I mentioned at the retreat we have a huge problem with Intel going against us with Linux.
