My point still stands - if the original systems had been Linux, MS would
have moved them to a *BSD *anyhow*.

OK? *REGARDLESS* of the technical merits, Microsoft would pick a *BSD over a
Linux solution because of the *licensing* involved.  Getting caught using GPL
software after what they've said about the GPL would be like Rush Limbaugh
getting busted for drugs after all the anti-drug stuff he's said.. Oh wait.. :)

Remember - they're the company that just fired somebody because he took
pics of Mac G5's being delivered at their corporate offices. :)
