    MSN search blocks Xfree86

    you can see here that it is returning a possible adult content warning and effectively blocking it from it results. Strange though that it still show's up competing linux searches when searched for by a distribution name or "linux".
    "The XFree86 Project, Inc is the organisation which produces XFree86™, a freely redistributable open-source implementation of the X Window System. XFree86 runs primarily on UNIX® and UNIX-like operating systems such as Linux, all of the BSD variants, Sun Solaris x86, Mac OS X (via Darwin), as well as other platforms like OS/2 and Cygwin."

    google certainly hasn't blocked it :

    Speaking of linux-hating microsoft; does anyone have a link to the study done by microsoft, that "proves linux costs more than windows"?
