Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

Welcome to capitalism. Microsoft built a monopoly under it and now that the economy is favoring a different computer model... they call foul.

I for one plan on buying a couple of IBM I-series systems for my IT department. I may also invest in a couple of servers to run windows for one thing or another, but the main system will be Linux.

I got tired of beating my head against the Microsoft monopoly back when Windows 3.0 went to 3.1.

I agree. I don't see the big "News Flash" on this. This was well known back in the mid 80's when I fixed computers for the military. They had to be Tempest certified before and after the fixes. It was common knowledge that EMF emissions would be able to be picked up and recorded some distance away from the host computer.
