Microsoft CEO Scoffs at Mac Share Gains
,----[ Quote ]
| Steve has a surprising view of the computing universe to put Linux before
| Apple. Most certainly, Linux's larger server share puts it overall ahead of
| Mac OS. But Steve wasn't talking about server here, but Windows client. So
| why rank Apple behind Linux?
See Microsoft's internal documents, e.g. "Linux Heat Map" <
http://boycottnovell.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/px09445.pdf >. They know
the truth. They pay to manufacture lies.
They are also paying to attack critics who try to tell the world the truth.
Same with the Gates Foundry...
