The MS executives don't seem to know that these names refer to the same
University. I guess if they knew they would have standardized
on either the English or the German name (using the English name would
also have eliminated the typo in the German version).
Or Thacker and Lampson have the names on their resumes in this way, and
Ballmer just got it from there.
Ok, enough nitpicking for now ;-)
