LXer: Windows 7 vs. Linux, Microsoft Trashes Open Source OS

Published at LXer:

The advent of the next iteration of the Windows client represents yet another opportunity for operating system measuring contest, and the Redmond-based company is not the one to back down from a comparison that would push its product to the foreground. In fact, the software giant has put together its own Windows 7 vs. Linux comparison and is offering it to retailers in a "Linux vs. Windows 7" module as part of the Microsoft ExpertZone training. GodofGrunts, self-described as a Linux Lobbyist, made the contents of the "Linux vs. Windows 7" module public by posting them on Overclock. The training is designed to allow retailers to “explain how Windows 7 can provide a richer and more engaging experience than Linux. [And] discuss the specific benefits of running Windows 7 on a netbook.”
