Am I the only one who got spam from Microsoft this morning, advertising Windows Server 2003 and Visual Studio .NET? I’m confused about where they got my e-mail address — I haven’t used a Microsoft product since 1999, and I’ve only been working for O’Reilly since the beginning of 2001. Also, what’s this crap?

Are they really that desperate for business now that they have to join the ranks of porn peddlers, penny stock hucksters, herbal Viagra purveyors, and the sons and widows of ex-Nigerian strongmen?
Did you get spammed by Microsoft, too?
