Microsoft Microsoft no longer thinks Linux poses a threat to its desktop Windows business. Directions on Microsoft's Wes Miller pointed out via Twitter how Microsoft has changed the boilerplate "Competition" section in its last two annual financial filings with the SEC.

And yet Linux is everywhere. Linux is running on more hardware and devices than any other OS. The desktop market is rapidly changing and desktop and mobile environments merge.

I'll tell you what Linux gives me that I would kill for in Windows. Integrated updates. I build my fedora box, I have it up to date all the time, never have to screw with it. In Windows, 6 months after I install the software, I have to go hunt down new versions and reinstall it all. A few things auto update themselves, but not most.
