Hi Taco,
these messages come from portage, Gentoo's package tool.  I've put the
latest release on my server:

  http://ms25.ath.cx/portage-2.1.9.25.tar.bz2

The message above is defined in bin/misc-functions.sh

Regards,
  Reinhard

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
