“Just how scared is Microsoft of Linux? I don’t know what to

“It also makes me a little queasy that some Linux and

touting Linux’s latest wins because they claim to be afraid that
Microsoft will find a way to use these success stories against them
in court. This isn’t as crazy as it sounds.”

“Saying that Linux is a competitive threat to Microsoft Windows

U.S.Microsoft’s insistence that small-time, alternative operating
systems like Linux are an immediate threat to its multi-billion
dollar core business is a bogus smoke-and-mirrors defense.”
