    Thank you for writing.

    The column "Massachusetts Should Close Down OpenDocument" that appeared on Sept. 28 identified author James Prendergast as executive director of Americans for Technology Leadership, but failed to disclose that Microsoft is a founding member of that organization.
    ATL is a coalition of technology companies, professionals and organizations that advocates for limited government regulation of technology and for competitive market solutions to technology policy. In addition to Microsoft, ATL's founding members include Staples, Inc., CompUSA, Citizens Against Government Waste, CompTIA, Small Business Survival Committee, Clarity Consulting, Cityscape Filmworks, Association for Competitive Technology and 60Plus Association.

    Mr. Prendergast's affiliation with Microsoft should have been stated clearly in the article.

    An Editor's Note is now displayed on our Web site:,2933,170724,00.html
    and the disclosure has been inserted at the end of the original article:,2933,170916,00.html

    I still want my debate with Mr troll !
    And yes i had andrea write my reputal for me and send it.

    I hate it how people try to pull this kind of crap it really goes to show you that big corps could care less about education or our well being there only thoughts are the all mighty dollar.

    By the way not counting Massachusetts desion there are huge amounts of companys droping microsoft like if it came with a case of anthrax.

    Many who are makeing the switch do say that there desion is based on cost, stability, security and there need not to get locked in to ms bull shit contracts.

    I wonder just how well vista will do if you have seen the hardware requirements and you use ms prepair for major hardware upgrades if you plan on useing it.

    My system is from 2001 and it doesnt even live in a case anymore and it is much faster than if i was running xp.

    Desides i hate spyware and viruses.

    Hmm lets see kde's occasional konq crash or dayly Ms XP blue sceen of suden death?

    You decided.
