Microsoft, in direct conjunction with The U.S. State Department has been trying to get those limey's to change "chips", in fish and chips, to, french or freedom fries for quite some time. The Brit's absolutely refuse to speak proper American English and therefore shall be banished to the realms of DOS 3.0 or earlier until such time as they see the err of their ways.

I laughed pretty hard when I heard someone from France refer to a sandwich as a "wretched English invention."

MS probably heard they were using Linux without paying MS patent Royalties!

in reality it will probably be: a) mistake on a MS automatic license server stating oxford is pirating software 2) oxford is pirating software 3) oxford servers were identified as being part of a botnet

those are my choices anyway- anyone else???

Two faculty members traded in their Windows workstations for iPads and required their class to write fart jokes about Balmer.

Weird. Fishy is written all over this issue. Why bothering to blacklist Oxford is rather strange.
