Microsoft manager Ed Muth slams Linux in an interview with PC Week. A year ago, Microsoft wouldn’t acknowledge the existence of Linux. A couple of months ago, Microsoft was arguing that Linux is a serious competitor in their anti-trust case, and now they’re actually marketing their products against it. Interestingly, what they don’t get is that Linux isn’t a competitor to Windows at all. If all of the Linux-centric companies go out of business, Linux will still be around, and people will still be improving it. How do you fight against that?
