    Found an interesting article

    http://www.wired.com/news/linux/0,1411,52973,00.html

    For those of you who haven't read about this, *shrugs* i just thought it was a interesting article to read and maybe discuss if anyone had any viewpoints on it.

    Microsoft did not respond to requests for comment on whether the company directly sponsored the debate paper.
    That would point to yes. They have their hands in way to many government tech consortiums, benchmarking companies, and tech writing companies. Funny thing is it always comes back to haunt them when the word gets out.
