More Than 10,000 in Mo. Seek Free Tech Training

| The partnership is called Microsoft Elevate 
| America. It offers free access to e-
| learning and certification programs from 
| Microsoft.
| Missouri is receiving nearly 25,000 
| vouchers entitling residents to access 
| specialized e-learning programs for Excel, 
| Word and other Microsoft programs and 
| platforms.


Microsoft partners with state to teach computer software skills

,----[ Quote ]

| participate in Microsoft Elevate America, 
| which started in February. The program aims to 
| train more than 2 million people throughout 
| the country during the next three years.

Microsoft WebsiteSpark tries to hit open source, mostly misses

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft tries to spin the open-source LAMP
| alternative as disjointed, and further argues it is a
| more expensive development path, and even that
| Microsoft offers better Web performance than LAMP-based
| development.
| But this isn't the way the Facebooks of the world see
| it. They view the open-source LAMP stack as the proven,
| scalable winner in Web development. Microsoft can't
| match that with a price tag.


Russia now considers Microsoft a monopoly


Microsoft To Officially Become a Monopoly in Russia

,----[ Quote ]
| Yesterday Russian anti-monopoly authorities informed us about the fact that
| they intend to officially include Microsoft in the register of monopolies
| doing business in the country.
| [...]
| In this manner the company will be monitored to see if it uses prices that
| are unreasonably high or unreasonably low and prevent competition in the
| market.
