Apparently, my blog got a visit from Redmond. Not only the city of Redmond (Washington, USA), but the IP address for that hit was reported to be part of Microsoft's address range. The operating system is Windows Server 2003 (not Vista or even XP or anything). And the browser? Firefox 2.0! And how did they find my blog entry? The "referrer" indicates that they went to Google News and searched for "OOXML", where a link to my article currently holds rank #2.
You know, I would have thought that they are all using IE and Vista and MSN search (or these days maybe even Yahoo?), but I guess not.
Sure, it's a huge company and eventually people will just use what works for them. It's not a big deal. Just kind of funny...
