And the crap up the top right says:
"An open operating system can mutate already times. With Windows 2000 however
there are all services and services from a hand. That thus really saves time and
for cash. More information under www.microsoft.com/germany/windows2000"
Yes, it's Babelfish, and yes, I'm bored.
And yes, it's a crap ad, if it's real of course. They're taking probably the
most useful aspect of Linux - its diversity - and trying to turn it into
something bad. I doubt very much that anyone who has had Linux explained to them
by someone reasonably competent, would fall for it. But there are some *very*
stupid people out there.
Maybe best to leave them on Windows completely?
