    Lee Gomes, the reporter who wrote the friendly (and curiously MSNBC-edited) piece last week about "Microsoft's Uphill Battle Against Linux" is back this week with an amplification on Microsoft's use of open source software. According to the story, some FreeBSD volunteers have found a lot of BSD software in use, even in Windows 2000, which has prompted Microsoft spokespersons to get to the point: "The Microsoft spokesman, in acknowledging that fact, said it didn't contradict the company's many recent anti-open-source statements. He said that's because Microsoft's main objection has been to Linux, which has a more restrictive licensing arrangement than FreeBSD."
