Donald, why would a magazine make a cover story about a recent 
installation, and
mention savings that haven't actually happened yet?

Because this kind of stuff sells subscriptions! <g>

And ... it generates controversy (like there here thread) <g>.

I do not subscribe to some kind of MS-inspired conspiracy ... but you DO 
have to wonder about the "bias-ness" of these publications ... just as I 
have to wonder about the posters on this list ... the writers at News/400, 
Midrange Computing, etc.

In any event, this kind of stuff is fun. Arguing about OS'es and languages 
(RPG? Puke!) is what can make a terribly boring day of testing interesting!
