Oh, I agree. There's only one reason why MS would have an Open Source
lab. The one 'good thing' is that there are so many variations on Linux
and platforms and combinations that they will never be able to test them
all, so they will never be able to create the truly convincing FUD that
they'd like to. This is another huge advantage of being a multi-culture
rather than a mono-culture when attempting to compete with the monopoly.
