Source for the OS/2 bit?

Looking at the results of searching for Linux on the BBC news site:

..I wouldn't say "they are quite anti-Linux" at all.

Especially not when I look at Netcraft and see that 
they (the BBC) are running Linux themselves.  


Yes, there is one columnist who doesn't seem too keen, but 
one person does not a department policy make. John Naughton
used to write for the Guardian "Online" section, but I don't 
think it would have been fair to extrapolate from that to
say that the Guardian were (or are) very pro-Linux.
