Ah, I've not really been paying them any attention, so I'm not too
familiar with all the politics. I see the company as mostly irrelevant
and would rather concentrate on Canonical, RedHat etc. Obviously,
Microsoft are still the dominant software company but I don't think
they'll ever pay more than lip-service to FOSS and so I don't want to
pay more than lip-service to them.
