LXer: Applying "The Art of War" to Open Source, Linux and BSD

Published at LXer:

Ask most people who have made the switch to a libre software product like Linux or BSD and they'll tell you that we're in a fight with Microsoft and everything that the closed-source world represents. It's not just us - Microsoft certainly thinks we're in a battle as well. Senior Microsoft leadership are actively engaged in spreading Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt to undermine the public confidence in Linux. Lawsuits have been filed over "stolen code" in the Linux kernel. Thinly-veiled "IP infringement" threats have been made to businesses running Linux. Massive marketing campaigns are being waged to confuse the true Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of Windows and Linux products.
