Microsoft’s lies about Linux revealed. Also, don’t buy a computer from Best Buy.

In an effort to thwart Linux sales on netbooks, Microsoft has started a training program at Best Buy to “educate” their “experts” on Linux. And true to their fashion, MS resorted to FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt) and straight out LIES!

I’ll concede that printing and scanning with Linux might be a bit of hassle to set up initially, but the same finger can be pointed at Windows and OS X.

And honestly, if you’re not up to the task you probably shouldn’t even have a computer of your own

Mobile phones, Linux and copyright reform. Those go together, right?


  1. AC:

    I guess this shows how desperate Microsoft is after the Vista fiasco.

    That list of devices Windows 7 is compatible with makes me wonder how bloated it is because I’m sure you’ll be installing every single one of those drivers on the install.

    And my response to the tutorial screen claiming that most of the customers have used Windows at home or at work seems to be a reason why you’d want to use Linux….


  2. Actually I thought that Windows 7 (and Snow Leopard) were an apology for the bloatware that was Vista & Leopard.

    But as you say, I’m past caring very much about either. 😎
