maybe it's not on the sight, because she opposes open source so much,
she cant bear to see her words served out to the world from a non MS


it might be worth pointing out that much of the internet she most
undountedly believes run on MS software actually doesnt.  infact, if it
did run on MS software her views might be somewhat different.

never trust a journo.  they only have their own self interests at heart,
and in many (but not all) situations this biases their views.
