Two Boston Globe writers got a tip that Peter Quinn had
taken trips to open source conferences. So when Bostonians opened their
newspapers this morning, the story was plastered on the front page. It stinks.



While we have documents showing Microsoft's lobbyists paying
for big trips for the former House Majority Leader and his family to go
to England and Scotland, Mr. Quinn wade trips to boring conferences.
The prices were cheap too.



To what depths will Redmond stoop to save their cash cow? They certainly don't mind ruining a man's career. This is another desparate attempt
to discredit Massachusetts OpenDocument adoption while no one is
watching on a holiday weekend. And what was Quinn attempting to do?
Save taxpayers money.
