Microsoft, the art of Corporate Terrorism

Filed under
Microsoft

Microsoft, no longer the technological leader in the Computer Desktop market, is taking on a terrorist role in its attempt remain in power at all costs.

The tactic is intended to frighten current, and would be, free software users away from products that Microsoft just can't compete with. It's not a new tactic, but for the first time desperation is beginning to show.

The latest high profile terrorist threats are at least partially due to the poor performance of Windows Vista. Additionally highly popular Open Source software such as OpenOffice.org, the free office suite that is said to be every bit as good as the Microsoft Office suite, is making huge inroads and runs not only on Microsoft Windows, but also computers using Apple Macintosh, Linux, BSD, and Sun's Solaris.
