Welcome to IWETHEY!

New So Microsoft has moved to . . .
. . Paraguay (always popular with defeated war criminals). Now, if I were IBM, I'd pay off Serenity Systems, slap a Warp 5 label on the product and sue DoD and GSA over the "Buy American Act".

Holding the only viable desktop operating system with a "Made in USA" label on it should be worth a little something. The only viable competitor would be suspect due to close association with foreign powers (but is also sold by IBM just in case you are a One Worlder International Communist Vegitarian).

Microsoft would be forced to have their CDs stamped in the U.S. so they could claim "substantial American content", but I don't think that'd hold up in court unless they sell the package for under a dollar.

New Hell, IBM wouldn't even have to...

I mean, Serenity's an American company. There'd be no reason why IBM wouldn't be able to benefit greatly from the relationship between the two companies, without having to deal with a lot of the support issues involved, and which they've always kinda sucked at anyway.
