Dear Bret,

I am sorry you have missed the point. The current topic is Microsoft's 
marketing machine and how very powerful that is when compared to any 
other vendor producing software including the Linux vendors. We have 
offered that the marketing machine works to the detriment of all other 
vendors at a very high level in organizations and thus stops other 
vendors gaining opportunities to put their products in place (including 
linux). This is not about bashing microsoft but about the lack of drive 
and influence of other vendors marketing machines including linix. Linux 
vendors like all others need to gain better marketing practice so they 
can compete and be seen as a solution to companies problems.

Yours sincerely

David Ruwoldt
