Microsoft continues to cite Linux as proof it is not a monopoly

In a published press release, Microsoft Monday rebutted written
testimony by government witness Franklin M. Fisher.

“In a last-ditch attempt to support his claim that Microsoft
possesses monopoly power, Professor Fisher tries to redefine the
desktop computer market in order to exclude any competitors to
Windows. But he ignores the fact that the PC competes with several
well-funded and supported operating systems: various types of UNIX,
in particular Linux; new OS’s such as BeOS; the Apple Mac (which
has recently regained share); emerging software-based solutions
such as network computers; and others such as IBM OS/2 and Caldera
OpenDOS.”
