I did. Microsoft came up because Basil Chupin decided that a bug in
Linux 3.0 for some reason reminded him that MS have written some Linux
modules. Perhaps I should have replied to him directly.

Not really. The subject header of these emails now bears no relation to
the actual subject of their bodies. Bottom posting doesn't keep the
thread in chronological order any better than top posting; snipped
bottom posting's main 'feature' is that it keeps each answer in context
with its question.
