Windows Microsoft's "You find it, you keep it" campaign, which directly attacks Apple, has seen another instalment. The first one, with Lauren criticising Apple for its pricing policy and lack of choice, was met with mixed reviews, and I'm sure the second one will not be received any differently. Giampaolo disses Apple for a lack of power and being all about aesthetics.

You think apple is Microsoft closest competitor? It is not, they are not worried about apple a bit, they just try to wipe the floor with apple that is all. Steve Ballmer has said it alright, he is more worried by Linux than apple.

The day Microsoft mention Linux in one of their adds is the day Ubuntu will have more than a million downloads, MS does not want that. Apple they can mention, cause apple fills a niche not everybody likes apple, I do like it, but it doesn't fit my needs. So there you go.

Consider what Matt Rossof said,an analyst with independent research firm directions on Microsoft:
"Macintosh computers are a threat in precisely one market — upscale consumer PCs, a small part of the overall PC market,"

"Linux is a bigger threat because it competes in more areas such as server OSs, embedded systems and increasingly on client PCs with the rise of low-cost netbooks,"

Just for people to think about.
