Exactly - this is the kind of crap that sells! 
Give the reader articles they (think) they want.
Can't wait for next weeks headlines:
        "Elvis installs NT Server to track drug prescriptions"
        "Three-headed baby seen testing beta copy of Microsoft Hydra"
        "Aliens buy WindowsNT to manage fleet of starships"
        "Bill Gates runs Microsoft using SQL Server"

"Tabloid Trash" for the MIS Supermarket checkout !
