Microsoft Cans Linux FUD Site, Launches Windows Server Site

An Interview With Joe Hewitt, Facebook iPhone App Programmer

scaledbmepb498770.jpgWay back in the day, when Linux wasn’t much of a desktop threat, Microsoft launched a site called “Get the Facts” that featured a 2002 study comparing the cost of ownership of Linux versus Windows. The new site, which is a bit less combative, compares Windows Server to Linux and Unix and offers a few case studies — nothing as nasty as hiring analysts to shill for the big M$.

With Linux hitting the desktop like a Rocky hitting a side of beef, it’s clear that Microsoft knows its licked and/or has accepted Linux on the server side as an inevitability. That doesn’t mean the FUD will end. It just means they’re getting smarter about it.
