Just months ago we laughed and cried at the ridiculous browser comparison chart Microsoft put up on their website. Now again they are trying to miseducate people by preparing highly biased Windows Vs Linux charts, as a part of Microsoft ExpertZone training materials for Best Buy employees.
An anonymous poster revealed that Microsoft offered Best Buy employees a retail copy of Windows 7 for only $10, if they can complete the training, at the end of which they are expected to better explain Best Buy customers the merits of Windows 7 over Linux. The Windows vs Linux charts are as convoluted and facts distorted as the aforementioned browser comparison charts were.
Although the statement about not being able to play "the games your customers want," is true to some extent, many of the games are playable through Wine. Even the example Microsoft choose “World of Warcraft” has good Linux support over Wine. Claims such as Linux not supporting video chat and not having “Authorized support” are all a part of Microsoft’s smear campaign against Linux.
Similar “myth” debunking are seen in areas of security, installation of upgrades, and availability of free software. Free software? Surely you must be joking Microsoft.
