Legal Linux vendor Red Hat, and 17 other vendors, have protested a Swiss government contract given to Microsoft without any public bidding. The move exposes a wider Microsoft monopoly that European governments accept, despite their lip service for open source, according to commentators.

You do realize that Red Hat just wants to be allowed to place a competitive bid?

I am not sure you read the article, if you find it despicable that a company that has shown they can provide a workable solution in other areas of the same Swiss government feels wrongfully excluded from a fair competition for a contract.

I suspect you may be just trolling, but if you are serious, please elaborate and we can discuss the factual issues.
