LXer: Microsoft acknowledges competition from Canonical and Red Hat

Published at LXer:

Microsoft's latest 10K filing with the SEC sees the company officially acknowledging that it faces competition from Linux vendors on the client side of its business, namely desktop Windows. Citing Canonical and Red Hat as "competing commercial software products", alongside Apple's products, Microsoft acknowledges that partners such as Hewlett-Packard and Intel have been "actively working with alternative Linux-based operating systems" and suggests that competitive pressures on OEMs and the low-price of netbooks are to blame.
