Unix bashing by Microsoft, who uses Unix?

I don't think I've seen any mention of this on the
list yet, and it's too funny to pass up. Microsoft and
Unisys are on a Unix bashing campaign, so they serve
up all their propaganda with FreeBSD... Reminds me of
the way certain members of Government operate...

Re: Unix bashing by Microsoft, who uses Unix?

Hmmm...I'm confused. Can somebody explain this to me?

Netcraft does indeed report an Apache webserver running on FreeBSD.
But a HEAD request returns an IIS server?

The site www.wehavethewayout.com is running Rapidsite/Apa-1.3.14 (Unix) FrontPage/4.0.4.3
mod_ssl/2.7.1 OpenSSL/0.9.5a on FreeBSD.

$ telnet www.wehavethewayout.com 80

Yes.  Look at the IP addresses, they're different.  The IIS server
is 130.94.214.143 and the FreeBSD one is 198.63.57.204.  So, either
someone fooled netcraft or they saw the article and took action.
They are both still up and displaying the same pages...

They are both in Verio datacenters. The FreeBSD box is in Virginia and
the Windoze box is in California.

It's all very silly. You can get UnixWare V7 or Open UNIX 8 for the ES7000
and the other Unisys boxes. The bottom line is that Unisys just isn't
selling very many machines, and Microsoft wants to sell $100000 Windows 2000
datacenter licenses. Since the isn't a standard "Wintel" box, there was 
probably a fair amount of development money spent. The top of the line ES7000
is $1000000+. I'd hate to get NIMDA virus on a box like that.

It does indeed support streaming from the net, and it does it very well.
Many times better than mpg123 manages it, at least.

It also supports remote control via an IRman, although last time I looked,
the irman plugin was broken in pkgsrc. This worked beautifully on FreeBSD,
allowing pretty much any standard TV, video or hi-fi remote control access
to almost all of xmms' features.

Including Start and Stop streaming from the net. :o)

I couldn't get it to work when trying to play some sample URL's from NPR's
(National Public Radio here in the U.S., for those who don't know) site.
(They had two formats, one of which XMMS would at least list in its
playlist, but ``playing'' that only caused a very brief burst of network
exchange and no sound.)

Could you suggest a URL to supply to XMMS?  Maybe by comparing a working
URL, I can see if my problems are pilot-error...

I can't find IRman with locate.  But, then, my pkgsrc is from ~March 1.

I assume that you need some kind of special sensor on the computer.  (Or
does this use the IR interface that some laptops have?)  Although it's
kind of academic anyway, since I don't actually have any such remotes.

(Hm.  But if IRman could work in reverse as well, letting an IR interface
on a laptop operate as a universal remote for stereos, TV's, etc...that
