Ajax on Linux?
Did you know that the free Ajax library from Michael Schwarz works with Linux as a client (in FireFox)?
Check out the screen shot.
That is Damn Small Linux (DSL) running withing Virtual PC, which has FireFox running and is consuming the Ajax samples which Michael has up on his site. Notice it is not doing anytihng special regarding the MSXML objects.

Bottom line. If your exposing Ajax on your site make sure to check the compatibility of your target client browser.
