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.
