Microsoft Resorts to Disinformation and Distortion Against Linux

Apparently the fear and paranoia inside Microsoft has reached the level where they are willing to say anything to try to fend off Linux. That now includes distortion, disinformation, false and misleading claims and statements, according to this article in Daily Finance.

Apparently the fear and paranoia inside Microsoft has reached the level where they are willing to say anything to try to fend off Linux. That now includes distortion, disinformation, false and misleading claims and statements, according to this article in Daily Finance.

If the reported content of the presentation is accurate, as it seems to be, even I am surprised at how low MS is willing to go, and how much they are willing to distort the facts, out of obvious fear of the truth. Of course, it is also possible that they are trying to deflect attention from the fact that Vista with Lipstick (aka Windows 7) has a pretty steady stream of bugs, security flaws and zero-day failures being reported, before it even goes on sale!
