Windows In a move that shouldn't surprise anyone, Microsoft has finally started to run an ad that's a direct attack against Apple. Previous marketing campaigns by Microsoft have always more or less ignored Apple, but the company's latest commercial is a direct attack on Apple in a place where it should hurt Apple the most: price.

Microsoft is dumb

A price war is the last thing that will help Microsoft; in the long run Linux will win in a price war. Microsoft's management is really short-sighted by doing this campaign: profits in the short run to please shareholders (helping management to keep their jobs), but losses in the long run...

To summarize: keep up the good work! This may be an important and real contribution to open source!
