"The Microsoft FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) campaign against Linux officially began when Microsoft Group Product Manager Ed Muth recently made some unflattering remarks about the OS. Eric Raymond, president of the Open Source Initiative, offered his entertaining view of this move in the exclusive LinuxWorld opinion piece, "Halloween V" (see Related IDG.net Stories below). To complement Eric's article, I would like to address one or two of Ed Muth's remarks in light of current events and recently released statistics."
