LinuxWorld Expo in Windows Server shocker

Linux jockeys: prepare your world to be rocked to the very foundation of discarded pizza boxes and crumpled tissues on which it rests.

No, the news is not that Perving Jedi has closed his Natalie Portman nip-slip website, but rather that LinuxWorld 2006 Conference & Expo is batting for the other side - and when we say the other side, we mean the forces of galactic darkness operating from their base in Redmond, USA:

http://www.linuxworldexpo.co.uk was running Microsoft-IIS on Windows Server 2003 when last queried at 3-May-2006.

Yes indeed, reader "Styles" tipped us off as to this outrage, and Netcraft kindly supplied the above verification.

LinuxWorld Conference & Expo 2006 is due to wow the UK-based open source community on 25-26 October.

Book now to avoid disappointment. ®
