Why is Bush Lobbying for M$oft

Maybe it shouldn' be surprising after Ashcroft's sweetheart deal with Microsoft over antitrust issues, but now Bush's Ambassor to Peru is lobbying that country to protect Microsoft. Peru has been planning a decree to use only open source software in its government systems-- a movement around developing nation governments that petrifies Bill Gates. Enter the lapdog Bush administration.
