MS Backs Off "Linux Costs More" Claim
from the yeah,-we-made-that-up dept
The Register has noticed that it appears Microsoft is quietly backing off their made up FUD claims that Linux actually costs more. They quote Steve Ballmer saying in an interview that Microsoft is struggling with a new way of thinking because they “haven’t figured out how to be lower-priced than Linux”. Also, the Register points out that a page on the Microsoft site that used to call claims of Linux costing less a “myth” have been removed.
