Taylor has become infamous with the Linux community for his role with the "Get the Facts" campaign that used Microsoft-funded research to show the TCO of Windows as being lower than Linux.

Russell Pavlicek, senior Linux architect at Cassatt Corp., an automation software vendor in San Jose, Calif., saw this latest attempt by Redmond as more of the same.
