Pathetic (FUD) Fear Uncertainty Doubt of Microsoft

Interesting, after 100 lines I stop reading this promotionnal articles, really good FUD (wikipedia):
Microsoft is hosting a discussion on Windows and #Linux between its two top #Linux consultants. Martin Taylor and Bill Hilf talk about the various OS

"We believe the way to integrate software, and the way to get software to work in a heterogeneous environment, is through promoting open standards"
a Funny response of a
slashdotter below…. so true and more to read here
Can somebody hit Bill with a clue-by-four and ask him about
1. Samba, and why the Samba project had to reverse-engineer everything?
2. Microsoft Office, and the hoops had to jump through to reverse-engineer their document storage format?
3. NTFS, and why #Linux still can't support NTFS write natively (without using a MS DLL)?
4. All the hidden system calls that Microsoft uses internally, and which came up in the anti-trust case?
