Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Erik Huggers, a Microsoft guy at the BBC, takes a look at Fedora 9 as his first Linux desktop and finds it surprisingly good. "I am glad that I got a chance to test drive Fedora and as a result have come to believe in the potential of Linux as a mainstream operating system. As Ashley said in this post last year, the BBC does a lot of work with open standards already - but in the future we plan to do more. We want to make iPlayer work on all operating systems including open source ones like Fedora and I am confident we'll make good progress on this before the end of the year."

The BBC's Technology page has a very Linux based bias. They are always publishing pro-Linux and anti-Microsoft stories.....

YET..

Their main IT television programme, Click, never mentions Linux, has never done a feature, and the Click webiste says over and over, that no-one uses Linux, apart from a few servers.

How can one company's outlook on a topic be so diverse ?
