Microsoft According to a leak from a BestBuy employee, Microsoft is initiating a sort of "Anti-Linux Training" course for the employees, and those who take part in the said training are rewarded with a copy of Windows 7 for only ten dollars. The leaked screenshots of the campaign show Microsoft's comparison of its own system with an obscure "Linux" and how Windows is better in every way including security, "free downloads", and software and hardware compatibility.

FUD - like in those good ol' OS/2 times

Oh, -yawn- they did it again?

That's the same thing they did when they literally "hired" people to FUD against OS/2 years ago (or was that "decades ago" by now?).
They seem to be become very desperate at Redmond if they are willing to take such ridiculous attempts. Linux has obtained a different flavor of "critical mass" - in different areas than OS/2 at that time. And there's much more acceptance by (different types of!) users with Linux than with OS/2. Let's sit back, take a good laugh at them and then get back to more important things...
