LXer: Microsoft denies paying contractor to abandon Linux

Published at LXer:

Microsoft has denied paying a Nigerian contractor US$400,000 in a bid to battle Linux's movement into the government sector. Media reports alleged that Microsoft had proposed paying the sum to a government contractor under a joint marketing agreement last year in order to persuade the contractor to replace Linux OS with Windows OS on thousands of school laptops.
