It has been said that many organizations think that if they link to "Essential Accessibility" they have dealt with accessibility.
 It is Windows only. 
It was covered by the New York Post and is promoted by the some in accessibility.
There is also a critique at: http://www.aoda.ca/?p=1098

I was asked to post this to the list to start up discussion
