the battle that matters

Richard Smith has the lowdown that will help the hardcore geeks decide where to cast their votes: a compare'n'contrast piece on the web server platform choice and security of the Kerry and Bush campaigns. No big surprises: Kerry on Apache/Linux, Bush on ISS/Win, and security rather poor on both.

I am of course joking when I say this will be the deciding factor for the hardcore geeks. Hardcore geeks get into that "information wants to be free" thing, which puts them pretty squarely at odds with the secrecy-obsessed Bush administration.
