    I like to try all flavors of the rainbow. Running SuSE 10.1 on my laptop, Windows XP on my desktop, and an Mac OS X on my Mac powerbook.

    Not only Linux and Windows, but all they're basically looking to set a standard for web commerce similar to java. Something OS inspecific.

    Now M$ supposedly *does* have a Linux computer lab or something thereabouts at the HQ in Redmond...just for research purposes, of course...
