While glancing over Slashdot today I was surprised to discover a story I wrote in November last year.
As many of the commentators on Slashdot noted, it’s not so much that Microsoft is installing a Linux-based wireless network but the fact that such a decision flies in the face of all the recent anti-Linux marketing from the company is a big deal. Interesting to read one comment by an apparent former Microsoft employee that the company has “sensitive” business information sitting on Linux servers. I’ll take that with a grain of salt until someone at Microsoft verifies it for me (and, hence, the world ;-)).
The story got heaps of hits when it was published so I can’t wait to see the total! Having developed a good relationship with the Aruba gang – I’ve also met the founder Keerti Melkote – and its over-zealous PR consultant (it’s OK, we’re best of buddies) I can safely say no need to bother me about not giving you enough publicity!
BTW, some Americans still fail to understand our date format – it’s DD/MM/YYYY. So the article was written in November last year, not April.
