Do As I Say, Not As I Do Department: Unisys and Microsoft decided to steer IT departments away from the evils of Unix and into the buttercup-strewn sunny fields of Windows. To that end, they deployed a Web site, rather euthenistically entitled "We Have The Way Out", which goes into some detail of how Unix is a terrible idea, what with all those expensive experts, complicated configurations, and so on. Much better to go for the simplicity of Windows, which as we all know needs next to no support -- and that from cheap simpletons.

A compelling case. Only a suspicious cur would think to look in with the Netcraft 'what is this site running?' Web checking service, and only a despicable dog would take any pleasure in finding out that We Have The Way Out actually means We Have Our Servers Running On FreeBSD Unix And Apache.

Woof, woof.
