French Minister: Stop Outsourcing World Of Warcraft

Realitycheck: What are the French talking about? There seem to be some missing facts in the article. World of Warcraft (WoW) is a Blizzard Game - that is Blizzard from Irvine, California, USA. Viviendi's purchase of Blizzard does not make WoW a product (or work of art) from France. They must also consider the Mona Lisa a French work of art since it hangs in the Louvre.

FH:: "Any company that resorts to FUD tactics to compete must not be very confident in its products and marketing campaign."

ebrke: "What he's done is put Novell/SuSE under a lot of pressure from the open source community. This is bound to have a bad effect on an already weak company, and I can't believe that this is an accident. Ballmer may be a blowhard, but unfortunately, I don't think he's a fool.

Sean Malone:: "My guess is iPhone before iTablet."
