Microsoft After the more-or-less positively received "You find it, you keep it" television advertisements, it seems as if Microsoft is quickly falling back to its previous mistakes of relying on easily countered FUD-like tactics. We already discussed the blog post regarding Linux on netbooks, which was easily countered on virtually every point made. However, it gets even worse: Microsoft has ordered a study detailing what the company calls the hidden "Apple tax" that you are supposedly paying if you go Apple. Now, I'm the first to state that Apple simply doesn't provide the optimal pricing for everyone, but this Microsoft sponsored study is so completely and utterly ridiculous it makes me wonder just who on earth would look at it and go "Yeah, this looks pretty convincing!"

just retarded. I mean they should just stick to attacking them through the advertisements. Any more and it's no more fun.

Also; it's not exactly "OS tax" -- that is much more in case of windows as compared to mac -- Leopard + iLife costs less than Home Premium (and virus scanners, the free ones are good nuff...). Rather, it's platform tax..
