Keep in mind that IBM is a huge company and many of the divisions don't 
quite see eye-to-eye on all issues.  The PC division in particular has 
been known to be highly Windows-biased and has been for many years -- 
dating well back into the early 1990s when IBM PCs preloaded with IBM's 
own OS/2 operating system were as rare as hen's teeth.
