Microsoft fights free software at Pentagon
This article isn't from some little Linux-only Web site. It's in The Washington Post. It begins, "Microsoft Corp. is aggressively lobbying the Pentagon to squelch its growing use of freely distributed computer software and switch to proprietary systems such as those sold by the software giant, according to officials familiar with the campaign." Read all the way to the end, please. Then, if you live in the U.S., send a copy to your congressional representatives and tell them what you think.
