This Is Rich…

I got a visit from The Man. No, not company officers trying to see what I’m writing about my employer, not the Department of Homeland Security (again!), I mean THE MAN – take a look:

I was just tickled to see someone from Microsoft coming here to look for information about installing Fedora Core 4. And what’s more – take a look at the browser my MS visitor was using – Firefox! What, Internet Explorer isn’t good enough for you guys? This really is rich…

    […] Hmmm – now it makes sense that Microsoft came to my blog looking for Linux driver information. They must be building a knowledgebase for support! […]

  2. Robert Millan says:

    And it’s much worse if you note what he was looking for:

    fc4 install network drivers
