Interesting article on ITWire in Australia. Bill Hilf is the man who has reneged on speaking at the upcoming Linux World Conf & Expo in Australia, although he did manage a phone conference to the recent GOVIS Open Source Seminar.

Bills main argument is that the reason Microsoft products are so successful is that they are integrated, easy to use and tested with a wide range of products. Really? I thought it was because you coudn't buy a computer or laptop from a major vendor that didn't have Windows on it.
