Yes, you are a freak Bryan, but not for this reason. ;-)

I support forcing people to use Linux is a corporate environment. It's
time all those Windows-weenies got a taste of their own medicine.

Sound like it's a pretty flexible policy if you're able to install
Breezy on your own. Let the Windows people do the same. If that means
them buying their own Windows license, all the better. ;-) If your
department has software that depends on Linux, no biggy. There are
plenty of Linux users surviving with VMWare. Should work just as well
for Windows guys.
