First it was Charles and Camilla and now this! While the Queen of England used to run her site with Red Hat Linux, she's moved to Windows Server 2003. Evidently she's been listening to Johnny Rotten a bit too much:

I am an anarchist
Don't know what I want but
I know how to get it
I wanna destroy the passer by

Indeed. The UK is part of Microsoft's feudal estate.

Sniff. We'll miss you, your Royal Highness!
