"" The drama continues. Last week, "yes" votes placed by Hungary and
Sweden were called into question by authorities in those countries over
concerns about voting irregularities. In Sweden's case, a leaked e-mail
from a Microsoft employee promised "market benefits" and increased access
to Microsoft resources to members if they voted in favor of approval.
Hungary is redoing its vote after allegations that Microsoft seeded its
panel with yes-men. ""

dreams of people who once trusted Microsoft."
