"The quotes in this article are taken from the exhibits
7168 and 7175 of the "Comes vs. Microsoft" case, which were
published by Roy Schestowitz. Note that these protocols were made
in 2002, when Linux was much less mature. The same applies to
Windows, of course. It is up to you to decide much progress each
platform has made since then....
"Microsoft admits that Linux is cheaper than Windows since it is
willing to "investigate" this over and over again until it gets the
results it wants. Yes, this was the start of the classic "Get the
facts" FUD campaign. It also shows that Microsoft has no scruples
whatsoever to buy fake reports or to bribe editors and journalists
in order to obtain the publicity it so desperately needs."
