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.

...right now Windows 7 is the superior option for an *AVERAGE* retail customer, simply because it is a Microsoft product and when the computer shits itself (and they all do at one point or another) there are innumerable more support channels that the customer will be able to pursue.

Yeah, me and others like me: computer-savvy friends, relatives, and coworkers. I'm going to end up with a copy of Windows 7 to help me help my family and friends with their new, incontinent machines.

Fortunately they all heard about Vista on their own, and stayed away, so I didn't have to deal with that much :-D.
