  That is probably exactly correct.  Witness that Micro$oft played host for voting
  representatives of the ISO for two days preceeding the 10/31 vote.  The US representative (&
  others) was wined and dined on the M$ campus in Washington, Redmond -- and then went out to
  vote against Sun caretaking the open standards to Java.  Did M$ buy the vote?  Of course
  they did.
