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 mud pie throwing is now at full speed. FSF has recently opened their windows7sins.org which creates FUD for all the sins that are Windows, and Microsoft is telling Best buy customers how bad GNU/Linux really are.

I prefer GNU/Linux with all the choice that it includes, but FSF with windows7sins.org is just as bad.

And the sad thing is that we could have claimed the high ground if RMS and his fanatic followers hadn't eroded it so badly.
