Dangers of Microsoft Technology by Matt Welsh

(Matt Welsh is the popular author of the free software
classic
Running Linux and several related books.)

“Why… would I care… about expounding the threat posed by
Microsoft, a company which I have little interaction with, and have
no need for the technology produced by? It’s simple: I see my way
of life as threatened.”

“What kind of danger does Microsoft present? As with any
monopoly, the pervasiveness of a single corporation’s technology
limits our freedom to innovate, to educate, and to build a world
which works for us–the users, rather than the economic needs of a
single large corporation.”
