PR disaster alert: Asus attacks on Linux

Posted 06-11-2009 at 03:18 AM by erlik

So ASUS decided to part way with Linux, the operating system that made the brand famous, to join forces with Microsoft. And they decided to make it in a very public way by stating a nice 'better with Windows campaign'. Well, sorry to disappoint you ASUS, but this is turning into a Public relation disaster!

As the articles here and here as well as the discussion on the LinuxQuestions forum point out, leaving Linux is not only a bad move from a technical point of view but the way it...
