Putting Windows On A Diet ... To Compete With Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| How scared is Microsoft of Linux?  There's a hint or two of its fear in the 
| fact that MS is preparing a special slim-and-trim version of Windows XP, 
| within the next month or two, to run specifically on Asus's Eee PC.  You'd 
| think maybe it could have done this slimming-down sooner -- something that 
| Linux already does without breaking a sweat.    



Feeling the heat at Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| A couple of years ago you reiterated that IBM was Microsoft's biggest 
| competitor and you said not just on the business side, but overall. If I ask 
| you who is Microsoft's biggest competitor now, who would it be?  
| Ballmer: Open...Linux. I don't want to say open source. Linux, certainly have 
| to go with that. 


Microsoft's SEC:

| A prominent example of open source software is the Linux operating system...
| To the extent open source software gains increasing market acceptance, sales 
| of our products may decline, we may have to reduce the prices we charge for 
| our products, and revenue and operating margins may consequently decline.
