    Why would a Linux user want Windows source code?

    Well, you did put dots in the URL that probably shouldn't be there...

    Don't you want to know how vunerable windows really is?

    Really,--------------------------------- I want to create a giant bill gates voodoo doll composed of the many lines of code leaked on the internet. Then I will toss the body into a bonfire and watch it burn.

    honestly you don't want to know, you might die from the horrible reality that it is.

    Skimming over some files I found it interesting to see who wrote portations of the code. Quite a number of them where signed satan@microsoft.com. The source for solitaire really stood out, it was signed by a help_me_bill_gates_has_enslaved_me_and _keeps_on_beating_me_because_I'm_not_producing_code_that_has_enough_security_holes@microsoft.com

    Hmm, I wonder what this all means...

    could you post the code or a link to it on this forum? I'm curious about it.

    "If you have downloaded and are making the source code available for downloading by others, you are violating Microsoft's rights, and could be subject to severe civil and criminal penalties."

    -sounds like bill gates is a little embarrassed about his work

    You hear that Dduardo?

    You are violating Microsoft's rights, and you could be subject to severe criminal penalties!!!

    But I'm sure Gates and his employees and working hard on this problem. It doesn't help that you are looking at the source code and...probably distributing and changing it? :wink:

    Yep! That is true Windows code!

    Thank you so much for enlightening us!!!
