Microsoft or Microsoft Open Source in this article is the subject. Microsoft has a challenge indeed and its not Linux. Its the Linux community and the FUD they spread. they continously demonize Microsoft and Microsofts offerings. Marketing is a bitch and you have millions of Linux users who continously market Linux software as the best thing since sliced bread. The one marketing tactic is Linux is Free to download and deploy, it costs no money. Thats true buthow many organizations are going to give up that throat to choke for free. People like support options, they like knowing they have someone to call when things go wrong.

Microsoft could not go Open Source with their current offerings even if they wanted to. But they could do like Apple did and start from scratch and add a “classic” layer.
