    I don't understand why they let MS take center stage at events like this. I get the whole "MS luvs linux" spiel, but come on. Isn't MS still aggressive towards linux with their patents and stuff? Bah...

            Yep, it's normal and perfectly reasonable. MS has a long history of using EEE tactics to kill competition. There is absolutely no reason to think any different about this circumstance.

                  True, but any organizational behaviour expert will tell you that changing a corporate culture is one of the hardest things you can attempt, even when management is all for it.
