in reply to Perl in the pole position

With much help from Babblefish, I think I got the gist of most of it, but one phrase cropped up a couple of time that is obviously a literal translation of something, slang possibly, that left me in the dark even with the aid of context.

What is/are talking moon operating systems?

    I guess talking moon refers to Redmond (Mond == moon, reden == to talk).

      Talking Moon - I love it. One the best euphemisms for the "Evil Empire" I've run across.

      This can't be an accident. Please say it isn't an accident.

      Cheers;

      I was pretty sure that it was referring to MS some how from the context, but I could not make the connection between MicroSoft and talking moon. The Redmond connection didn't even cross my mind. Thanks.
