``Microsoft is preparing a broad campaign countering the movement to give
away and share software code, arguing that it potentially undermines
the intellectual property of countries and companies. At the same time,
the company is acknowledging that it is feeling pressure from the
freely shared alternatives to its commercial software.''

This is great news for people who aren't huge fans of Redmond Empire --
not only is the spinfo in the article largely wrong (but superficially
plausible, typical FUD) but there's nothing they can do about it!
They're in trouble and they know it.
