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.

the author obviously didn't take the time to inform himself @ www.microsoft.com/getthefacts, all the facts are there.

Damn that felt go, no kidding! The part with the 10$ copy of w7 is a great incentive for the seller to promote Microsoft's product and it's pretty smart marketing to aim at the seller instead of the buyer directly, that part of their advertising was already covered.

Very smart move, but they shouldn't feel the need to put things like live essentials, their library of apps, games, support, peace of mind and familiarity should suffice, after all even I wouldn't use linux so I won't recommend it to anybody, just not for most of the reasons mentioned in their "course" ;)
