Re: Linux on the Desktop - latest survey (may 2009)

Verily I say unto thee, that Roy Schestowitz spake thusly:

That's "Freeform Dynamics"

Ostensibly, The Register, although I'd guess it was actually paid for by
IBM, since they seem to have the results before everyone else:


Here's the poll:


Also see Message-ID:


As for the domain not working, a bit of research revealed this:

Cattail is a web site where IBMers can upload files and share them with
their colleagues. It was designed to provide significant advantages over
email when doing "ad-hoc" sharing of files. When you share a file with
someone, Cattail sends the recipient an email. If you upload a new
version of a given file, Cattail will inform all of the past recipients
of a file that a new version is available for upload.


Looks like Rex posted a link to an Intranet page internal to IBM.
