Finally Microsoft is fighting Ubuntu


As I and millions of others await the release of Ubuntu 9.04 I can't help wonder why Microsoft is trying to downplay the importance of this Operating System on Netbooks. Is it because $300 Laptops makes their profit margin slim. $300 for XP Professional doesn't seem like a lot of monies if the laptop costs $1000. Is it because the boot time on Ubuntu is 3 times faster than Windows? or maybe it is because the can't make money via removal of viruses / spyware when Apple and Ubuntu don't have any of those headaches. Come on Microsoft lets not use FUD.
