| The biggest issue I found was that they haven’t figured out how to merge all 
| of the applications together. For example, the video games are just standard 
| Linux games (including the Linux port of Doom) so they don’t implement input 
| hooks for the fancy Red controls.

It's unofficial: Microsoft bets business on Linux

| What the press statement didn't mention is that Aruba mobility
| controllers run the Linux operating system which Microsoft has
| aggressively targeted as being inferior to Windows as part of
| its "Get the Facts" marketing campaign.
| [...]
| Pandey's appraisal of Aruba's technology is in stark contrast to 
| Microsoft's "Get the Facts" rhetoric which places Windows as a more secure, 
| and higher-performing choice over Linux.


Top secret: Microsoft's $6 billion open source play

,----[ Quote ]
| This month's announcement by Microsoft to acquire digital marketing
| services firm aQuantive has revealed little on how the companies 
| will integrate their IT, but inside information indicates the deal 
| may be Redmond's largest commitment to free software.
| [...]
| Whether the businesses are complementary or not, Microsoft's integration 
| work will no doubt involve a lot of open source software used by aQuantive.
| Information available from Atlas' Web site indicates the Internet software 
| company employs extensive use of open source software including Linux,
| Apache, MySQL, and Solaris.
| Software engineers at Atlas' Raleigh office do client/server development in 
| C and C++, software maintenance and "scripting", and developing and
| maintaining custom reporting capabilities. 


Akamai Earns More

| When it comes to stocks, all growth streaks end. Sometimes,
| they end suddenly. (Just ask those who've been invested in
| Microsoft or Intel for more than a few years.) But for Rule
| ^^^^^^^^^
| Breakers pick Akamai Technologies, the cash spigots remain
| turned on full blast.
