  1. Die-hard IIS fans are NOT to see this as any kind of betrayal. Not at all.
    Really.

    Do you see every port of open source software to the windows platform as
    a betrayal of the Open Source Movement? Or are you just being
    hypocritical again?

    Do you not see that MS is better off if their file formats are supported
    by more web server platforms? it is better for their customers if they
    can use any web hosting company without having to ask "what web server
    software do you use?"

    Is this relevant to something?

    Larry is the protypical dead-ender. He will never accept that software users
    and developers have moved on from the pointless "closed-source vs
    open-source" dichotomy. All he can think to do now is snipe from the
    sidelines.
