   obviously you have keener insight into what drives
   purchase decisions in fortune 500 companies than I do.
   I was unaware that they based their enterprise
   platform investment decisions based on the morality of
   the vendors. 

   Thanks for setting me straight.

It's a factor in decision making that has bitten Microsoft's ass a few
times, at least according to the press releases.

We can find more notorious examples in other transaction decisions,
too: for example, people tried the Sullivan Principles for a while.

I'm certain that there are other, less publicized examples as well.
