Yes, caught the last few minutes of it. The interviewer kept saying stuff
along the lines of "well, won't that be bad for microsoft?" regarding them
using NC devices or open source platforms and most of the interviewees
sheepishly grinned and said "it's good for us".
On a similar note - at work we use products from Sun, IBM, BEA Systems and
Inprise. When hunting for support on their websites, it has become a
chore to wade through all the Linux-related press releases and
I think it's great to see such overwhelming commercial support for the OS.
