Microsoft attacts linux at the retail level.
« on: September 05, 2009, 05:44:46 pm »

Interesting article about how microsoft is training against Linux at the retail level.
I won't say they are lying but you have to question the quality of their truth.

It was hard for me to tell what was going on with the link as all the pics were absent. I wonder what the Best Buy session for its "experts" had to say about other OSs when compared to Win 7?

I guess photo bucket just figured it served up to many of the pictures.  I used view image to get the pictures to show. This time I captured then with import.  I'll attach the first 4 with this post.

To me, this legitimizes Linux. I see it pushing prices down and fostering creativity.
