Support against Microsoft takeover attempt on Zimbra (part of Yahoo), an Exchange Server alternative sign now

Do you believe a small company should have a fair chance to compete against Microsoft?

If yes, it is critical that you SIGN THIS PETITION NOW!!

YES - I want other software choices besides Microsoft, and the lower prices competition creates!

YES - I want to protect the embryonic Yahoo-Zimbra Exchange Server alternative from Microsoft anti-competitive annihilation!

YES - I want to protect Linux and all open-source software from Microsoft disruption (Zimbra runs on Linux, Microsoft Exchange Server runs on Windows)!

Time is running out, SIGN THIS PETITION NOW!!

BACKGROUND: Yahoo bought Zimbra in December for $350,000,000. The people who use Zimbra in their businesses are alarmed because the dominant force in this area, Microsoft, will own the rights to Zimbra when it buys Yahoo. As Zimbra technology competes directly with Microsofts Exchange Server, Zimbra will likely be terminated. Zimbra users would have no choice but to become Exchange Server customers as other alternatives to Exchange Server are not as well developed as Zimbra. Divesting Zimbra from Yahoo would be a partial victory for Microsoft, as Zimbra is a small company, and without Yahoo, it's ability to compete would be curtailed.
