GNU, GPL, Open Source Keith Curtis worked at Microsoft for 11 years, coding on Windows, Office, and at Microsoft's research department, before leaving the Redmond giant. Call it a revelation, call it giving in to the devil's temptations, but he's now a complete open source and Linux advocate, and in his new book, "After the Software Wars", he explains why open source will prevail against Microsoft's proprietary model.

How do you prove Microsoft stealing others' work?

Come on, this is not a fanboy thread.

You said so much "Microsoft stealing..." but you can't prove them.

No , you can't accept **reality**. Beside everyone knows that innocent and real people people ( you know those who like me use there real life name ) say "I never steal anything" Not "you can't proove them".

Very funny. What about this:

So Apple is stealing from others.

Accept the reality: Apple took codes from FreeBSD, add an ugly shell (Aqua) and sell it. Also Apple denies that security does matter:

Accept the reality.
