Submission + - Microsoft wanted to hide behind "Get the Facts

Hawaiian Rules writes: InformationWeek has a blub on how Kevin Johnson — the man who now leads Microsoft's Windows — wanted to hide Microsoft's name from a TCO report that it commissioned for its controversial "Get the Facts" campaign.

From the story: "I don't like it to be public on the doc that we sponsored it because I don't think the outcome is as favorable as we had hoped. I just don't like competitors using it as ammo against us. It is easier if it doesn't mention that we sponsored it."

If I'd known computer science was going to be like this, I'd never have given up being a rock 'n' roll star. -- G. Hirst
