Welcome to Gerald Holmes'es Why Caldera Sucks
Calderas a company that bought DR-DOS from Novell who bough DR-DOS from
Digital Research. Whats DR-DOS you ask its a clone of MS-DOS that some
people thought was "better" than MS-DOS but those people were stupid it
wasnt better I mean think about it did Micorsoft make DR-DOS? no. then it
must not be that good right.
Whats up with Caldera
Oh Caldera thinks they should sue Micorsoft for 90 bazillion dollars just
because Micorosoft supposedly disabled Windows so it wouldn't work with
DR-DOS and then they bundled MS-DOS with Windows and "technically" both
those things are illegal for Micorsoft to do but thats only "technically"
and Ill now list my reasons why this is dumb:
- so what if Caldera lost a whole bunch of money by buying DR-DOS
thinking that it would continue to grow? they should have been smarters.
obviously Micorsoft was going to crush DRDOS duh.
- so what if
Micorsoft did something bad it happened ten years ago
cant we just let it rest and forgive them. I mean Micorsoft has
forgiven us the users many times for our stupidiitys dont we owe
them the same?
- also who cares if sales of Caldera were growing very fast until the now
"Windows doesnt support your OS" red herring? windows still worked
with DRDOS it just said it didnt so what if you want to run windows on top of
DRDOS then you should be forced to put up with a little "Warning this wont
work" message every time you boot up Micorsoft can try to scare you off if they
want they invented DOS and they invented the hole idea of operating systesm
in the first place they had to because after Bill Gates invented computers
he had to invent the operating systems!!!!
- they say that the code in the windows that puts up the DRDOS error message
was encrypted and code was inserted to disable debugging of the code so that
they say Micorsoft tried to "hide" this code. Well so what they can do what
they want this is america not Canada duh!!!
- who wants to have the choice of two DOSes under which to run Windows
anyway I mean its much easier if Micorsoft packages it all up into one thing
and thats what they did and it benefits the consumer and so there. And if
you still really really want to run DRDOS you can you just have to buy Windows
with MSDOS first and then by DRDOS see you still have choice!!!
- So what if this hurt Caldera there just another company and it didnt hurt
consumers because whod it hurt? so therefore let Micorsoft go!!!
- Micorsoft never had to let anyones to develop for their OS peoples!
they made windows and they didnt have to tell you how to make programs for it
they could have ritten them all by themselves because they are that smart you
could have bought a computer with nothing but Micorsoft software on it and
you would be very very very happy happier than you are now when you use those
piece of junk third party softwares program. All the companys that make
stuff for windows are merely a guest in their world. It's Micorsofts product.
- Apple does bad stuff too they dont let nobody make apples but themselves
so if they can why cant Micorsoft yeah.
- Micorsoft told everyone "hey dont run this on DRDOS or else you violate
our EULA and well sue your pants off" but those that did anyway got the
message so its there own derned fault those stupidheads.
- Bill Gates said
"hey we didnt do nothin bad" and hes prety trustworthy so if he said
it then they didnt do it and its all okay and Caldera should go away and
quit bothering Micorsoft who does good things.
Well okay now I think I've convinced you you can go back
to my main page now.
