Microsoft "The Free Software movement is dead. Linux doesn't exist in 2007. Even Linus has got a job today." Controversial statements from the head of Microsoft's Linux Labs, Bill Hilf. Speaking on the last leg of a tour of Singapore, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand, Bill Hilf, more formally known as Microsoft's platform strategy director, was in the region to 'be descriptive and intelligent in giving people an understanding of open source and debunk a lot of the mythology around open source'.

If MS is so worried about OSS taking over, which is apparent, why don't they start developing better software? Vista is not a good os from what I have heard, if they were more conserned about creating a good secure stable OS it would be a lot better. It sucks they rush out the next OS to make some $$ as soon as they can.
