Doesn't seem that long ago that UNISYS and Microsoft were all partnered up on this anti-Linux campain. I can't for the life of me remember that web site they had put up. Does anyone remember? There was also a spoof site set up immediately after it went up. I recall an image of a big empty room with a Window (MS Window). Oh well, the spoof site was great. I'm sure it will come to me eventually.

and the site still exists.

That was quick! :) I can't seem to find the spoof site now. I thought it was [[email protected]] but there doesn't seem to be anything there.

EDIT: Actually from a search it appears to have been [[email protected]] but that site appears to be different than what it once was.

My memory is poor here, but I think the second URL you posted was indeed the original site for the spoof. It does ring a bell.

archive.org didn't have any data on it, except to confirm that it was launched around the same time as the unisys antiLinux site.
