[Editor: This is a great article and one that should smoke. Except for the gentler tone, Greenmeier and McDougall muckracked the analysts at Gartner, Forrester, IDC and the Yankee Group. Finally, you say.

I particularly liked this quote:
Money changes hands, and the vendor that commissions a report often reviews it before general distribution. Microsoft's "Get The Facts" marketing campaign has made liberal use of sponsored research to tout the benefits of Windows over Linux. Such reports aren't always clearly marked as having a vendor's backing. A 47-page white paper by Security Innovation, published in November, mentions that it was funded by Microsoft at the bottom of page 6.
